Where do you start with t-shirts from BioME 5!? There are so many good things about these t-shirts, I’m not sure where to begin. I guess first you can start with the company name because once you learn about the company’s vision, you’ll see the reflection in the clothes. Two architectural designers created the BioME 5 Animal Alphabet Project. The concept was creating a kids t-shirt to become a learning tool, combined with amazing animal images to foster an appreciation for nature’s beauty.
The name BioME 5 was inspired from the Earth’s natural biomes: desert, grasslands, aquatics, forests, and tundra. All of the animals featured on the tees exist in one of these environments. Now, back to the fact these tees were developed by architectural designers, the word of the animal printed on the shirt is inverse so that your child can read the word from their vantage point. This concept is brilliant. Not only have they encouraged children to learn through letter recognition, they learn about the animals that exist in the world around them.
The t-shirts are 100% organic and made in the USA. They incorporate eco friendly packaging with using biodegradable plastic bags or recycled and post-consumer waste paper packaging.
What can you find wrong with these products? They have set the bar high with a hip, edgy, educational, fun product that is socially responsible and eco friendly. Many of you know I have a growing owl obsession (thanks to Etsy and their prints)…so if the kind folks at BioME 5 could change their ‘O letter’ tee to incorporate the owl that would be my only suggestion for improving this awesome product (no offence to the octopus of course!) <smile>
