A dilemma

by Handsome Matt


Here’s the deal:

Organic cotton t-shirts will raise the cost of my final product by at least $5.00. Bamboo shirts are out entirely: in bulk they’re much to expensive. And the recycled t-shirts I’ve seen just don’t have the right look.

Here’s where the dilemma kicks in:

Do I focus on a fully sustainable product despite the costs?

OR

I keep costs lower, and donate a larger percentage of my profit towards social, economic, and environmental initiatives?

On the one hand I’d like to make a cradle to cradle product, however I’m not in a purchasing position to make that occur at this point.

Suggestions?
