Celebrate the Peace Corps 50th Anniversary in style. Carefully selected to ensure sustainability and support global causes, this Edun Live organic cotton shirt is produced by small, local enterprise in Uganda. But it doesn’t end there. Proceeds from your purchase of a Peace Corps Anniversary shirt goes to support volunteer projects funded by MNRPCV grants. And thus we continue to celebrate and support our brothers and sisters around the globe, even as we reside here in Minnesota. Printed using windpower and non-toxic water based inks by a local printer, you can be sure that your purchase is a socially and environmentally conscious decision.
