Bottled Water Companies Don’t Produce Water 1999 Vintage Men’s T-Shirt




Ironically, it takes more water to produce a plastic bottle than what it will carry – with around 1.47 quarts (1.39 liters) needed to produce a 1.06 quart (one liter) bottle. That’s less than what it takes to produce a bottle of soft drink, but still lots for a product you can get from the tap. Around the world, we spend $100 billion on bottled water every year. At around $1.22, your average bottle is 300 times more expensive than tap water. In 2006, it was estimated 17 million barrels of oil were needed to meet the demand for bottled water in America alone. To imagine the amount of oil used to produce virgin plastic bottles, picture a bottle filled one-quarter of the way with crude oil. Most plastic is generally thought to take at least 450 years to fully biodegrade. But bottles made with polyethylene terephthalate (PET) don’t biodegrade. They are broken into smaller fragments in the ocean by light and end up harming sea life. Think bottled water is a matter of taste? Bottled water companies like to promote their products alongside images of natural springs and ice-topped mountains, but many of them are simply elaborately filtered from the tap. Most people can’t tell the difference, according to various studies. Don’t like the taste of the tap water where you are at? Adding a simple bolt-on filter to your faucet, using a filtrating pitcher, or a more complex inline reverse osmosis filter system will not only further purify your tap water and change the taste, but most every filter option will exceed the purity of even the fanciest, most expensive brand of bottled water.


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
