Comments about Product:My daughter loves this t-shirt. She has had several comments on it from friends and even several who asked how to get one. The kids especially love the product facts on the sleeve. Very comfortable also. Thanks!
Comments about Product:At first I ordered a women's small tee. It was TINY. More like a child's small. So I had to order another one, this time a women's medium. This one is on the verge of being too small. I weigh 110 lbs, 5'6. In unisex sizing I normally wear a youth large. I love the shirt, though, and am happy to have and wear it. I get a lot of comments on it. Especially the "contents" label on the sleeve. Nice touch!
Comments about Product:I love the shirt! It is so comfortable. A heads up to other customers though, the shirt runs small. Most American Apparel shirts are on the small side but this specific cut runs even smaller. Keep up the good work reusablebags!!!
Comments about Product:This shirt is great. The message is so blunt and it really is a conversation starter. My favorite part is actually the little "nutrition label" on the sleeve - very witty. It does run a little small, but the quality of the shirt is very good.

Comments about Product:The t-shirt was a really sturdy cotton shirt unfortunately the women's shirts are sized ridiculously small. I ordered a medium, which fit snug before the washing. After washing it just once, it was smaller than an x-small. If you are interested in getting this shirt in the women's size, DEFINATELY size up.
Comments about Product:I just love thie message on this shirt. Gets right to the point. Plus its free advirtisment for reusablebags. Another plus with this shirt. I just wish they would have more slogans and more t shirts we could buy. The word of mouth (or shirt) is very powerful!
Comments about Product:Love the T-shirt, I plan to buy another one. Like the other reviewers said, it Does Run Small. I ordered a Large and I am a rather small woman. I just love it and it is so soft!!
Comments about Product:I love this t-shirt. The fabric is amazingly soft but still excellent quality. Extremely comfortable t-shirt. Came with a "plastic bags blow" sticker which is proudly displaced on my helmet.

Comments about Product:This shirt is a great way to tell people how to help the environment. It's good quality, soft and comfortable and everyone loves the "ingredients list" printed on the arm! How can you beat the price!
5.0 Well, i never got to wear one of the T's I ordered
Comments about Product:Well, i never got to wear one of the T's I ordered, as my children (adult)! who are all about saving the planet have them on !!! everyone who sees them want to know where i got them , they are cool, wow genious created that T, and other just awesome comments...especially number one, the issue it defines, plus the softness of the T... I am an artist and have an annual open house every November..always the Friday night following Thanksgiving (wine and cheese event) and hope sales!! and all day Saturday....I wanted to order at least 100 of the same T and would offer it for free if they in fact bring the invitation (printed postcard) i send out ! but of course I'm a "starving artist" as most of us are, and i know at present everyone is struggling financially...well, most of the people i know are !! i wanted to get p price on 200 T's in various sizes...probably medium to XX, and i will look NO further...because this is the item i would be proud to offer and proud to see my customers wear....thank you so much....some one ther is a genious !!!!!!!!!!! sue brown...please contact me when you can..i will look forward to hearing from you !!!!!!!!!!!!

Comments about Product:Before purchasing this shirt I read the reviews, and they were helpful to me, hopefully this review will help someone else. When I received my order (didn't take long) I was so excited. To my surprise the shirt was even softer than I could've imagined and I knew from the first touch that it would be a favorite. I am a bartender and wore it to work on a Saturday and it was a great conversation topic. I was able to share my views and some facts about plastic bags, along with other items that can be recycled. I was able to spread the word just by wearing the shirt. If you work in a place where you can wear this shirt, it is a must have... Not only for the comfort factor and the quality of the shirt, but for the good feeling that you will get by spreading the word just by wearing it... ( BTW, I would certainly brush up on my facts about recycling prior to wearing it, because you will be asked questions... Against Plastic Bags in TN, Carrie
5.0 Love the way our Organic cotton "Plastic Bags Blow
Comments about Product:Love the way our Organic cotton "Plastic Bags Blow" feel and the message that is sent by wearing them. They do run a little small but only because I have never worn a fitted T-shirt before. Our household motto is "Buy Organic, Local and Fair Made" and these shirts fit all three areas and for $5.00 I'll be back for more (I would have paid $10.00 to save an American Job!). I do recommend hang drying them though because ours still fit like the day we bought them after three washes. Buy American and save this broken economy!!! Good work reusablebags.com David B.

5.0 I bought the activist kit at least three years ago
Comments about Product:I bought the activist kit at least three years ago and I've been wearing this shirt weekly ever since, especially on days that I meet people for the first time. Turned a lot of heads in that time. (Actually, mine was usually the head that turned, as I showed off the back of the shirt.) I have the previous version, from before it was printed on American Apparel, and it's finally wearing out so much I'm ready to replace it.
Comments about Product:Absolutely DO order one size up. I typically wear either women's small or medium. I ordered a "women's medium" and it just barely fits. If I had to do it over, I would get a women's large. That said...since the goal is to get people to read it, maybe a little tight isn't all that bad. :) I would have preferred it have a little more shape to it, also. The cut feels very unisex to me, even though I ordered the women's.
Comments about Product:These t-shirts are super comfy. HOWEVER, the women's size does run small. I ordered a medium b/c of the review that said they run small, and the person was definitely right. The medium fits like a small, so it is perfect. I ordered a large in unisex for my husband and it fits him well, but he is more of a size medium than a size large so the unisex ones seem to run small too.
5.0 I loved the shirt when I saw someone else wearing
Comments about Product:I loved the shirt when I saw someone else wearing it and had to have one for myself. It's so soft and the fit is really nice. The slogan is a great conversation starter and even my 10 year appreciated the "% of Daily Values: Sweatshop Labor: 0%" on the sleeve. There was such a buzz about them, everyone wants one!

Comments about Product:love the tshirts get some funny responses from the quote, "Plastic bags blow" Spreading the word. As a teacher we discuss our impact on the world. We are selling our own hand dyed and sewn bags at our yearly bazaar. We use unbleached muslin and various plants and spices for the color. Maybe I'll send a photo!

Comments about Product:This t-shirt is such a great deal! Simple design and a great message all wrapped up in soft organic cotton that feels great against your skin. Its hard to believe these are Fair Trade when they are at such rock bottom prices. Organic Tees go for at least 20 - 30 dollars a pop! These tshirts are not cut for women. They are more like big boxy tshirts so keep that in mind when ordering size. My medium is big enough and roomy enough to work out in, but not so big it's like a nightshirt.
Comments about Product:What fabulous Tee's! I have never felt anything so comfortable. My kids and I have been sleeping in them alot, we jsut can't help ourselves! and the price can't be beat. Also, wearing them out in public has brought up soem great opportunities for discussion about the evils of plastic.
Comments about Product:This is the softest t-shirt I own! It feels so nice, yet it is still a durable t-shirt. It was a great bargain and I might just have to buy another now that they come in women's sizes too!
Comments about Product:These American apparel shirts are great! I love the content label on the sleeve. They were constructed well, super soft cotton, and the unisex sizes were right on. Great price too, i hope you offer these again at this price, I would like some of the womens shirts too.
3.0 Great price on a soft organic t with a great messa
Comments about Product:Great price on a soft organic t with a great message. However, I did NOT like the "ingredients" on the sleeve. That was not apparent to me when I bought the shirt and makes me not want to wear it outside of the house.

Comments about Product:I wore this tee to the Bridge School Benefit (www.bridgeschool.org) and was really pleased to spread the word! It's a nice fit, good quality, and I look forward to wearing it to other events.
Comments about Product:I love the shirt. I've already had several comments on it! I got one for my husband and myself. I wish they made an infant shirt, though. Folks check out my daughter way more than her parents...it would be much better advertising on her! Ha, ha!
5.0 This is one of my new favorite t-shirts to wear
Comments about Product:This is one of my new favorite t-shirts to wear. Whenever I wear it, I always get compliments from people 'in the know' or questions from curious bystanders. I love knowing that I'm making a statement about an issue that's important to me. And hopefully, people will remember the website so they can get their own t-shirt! Plus, I have a great Christmas gift idea now for several friends who want this shirt.
5.0 me and the kids wear these all the time, while wal
Comments about Product:me and the kids wear these all the time, while walkin the dogs, goin to the store. I love educating everyone about alternatives to plastic bags. The t is super soft and cozy. At the price they are, everyone should buy one!
Comments about Product:I LOVE MY SHIRT!!! This t-shirt is really stylish! I have gotten many comments on it, and it makes people interested. I love the faux nutrition facts section. It is nicely made, and soooo soft!
Comments about Product:The shirts are VERY soft and comfortable. I ordered a unisex large and a women's large. The unisex shirt fit just right, but whe women's shirt was quite a bit smaller than I expected. Luckily, my daughter loves it. You can never teach eco-friendly habits too early.
4.0 i like the feel and constrution but the womens siz
Comments about Product:i like the feel and constrution but the womens sizes run very small. i usually wear a medium but this was so small before i washed it that i could barely get it on and off. so i gave it to my 12 year old and am ordering another.
5.0 Love the t-shirt and have worn it a couple of time
Comments about Product:Love the t-shirt and have worn it a couple of times since receiving it. I think it is really getting the message across to my friends, co-workers and people who watched me play tennis about reusable bags!
5.0 These shirts are great value for organic cotton
Comments about Product:These shirts are great value for organic cotton. They are also a great advocate for using resusable bags. I have had numerous people start a conversation because I was wearing the shirt. I love it.
