Edun Live was founded by Bono and his wife Ali Hewson to help improve lives in Africa. All the t-shirts are made in Africa by Africans. They have recently launched a new t-shirt website calledwhich sells t-shirts (Edun Live) with song lyrics that begin with “I”. At the moment there are only nine shirts but they intend to create many more and they are letting people make suggestions on their web-site. All the t-shirts cost $35 which is a little expensive for a text design t-shirt but it also includes 10 free tunes from iTunes. Any ten songs. That’s like knocking $10 off the cost and will be especially attractive for those who regularly download from iTunes. And yes, for those of you who are wondering, they do have permission to use the lyrics and they even pay royalties for every shirt sold to the respective artists. At the moment they are only shipping to the US but they are preparing for International shipping as we speak.
At the moment the following lyric t-shirts are available:
- I love rock n’ roll
- I still haven’t found what im looking for
- I will survive
- I used to rule the world
- I’m a hustler baby
- I’m wanted dead or alive
- I’m the only one
- I wanna dance with somebody
- I go back
You can choose either black t-shirts with white text or vice versa. There is a hint in the FAQ that they may add more products to the lineup at a later date.
If you are interested in Edun Live but not so much in the I/denti/tee you can try the Edun Live store itself or the Edun Live store at Zazzle. In fact all designs that are on Zazzle t-shirts are available on Edun Live t-shirts. You can even add your own design if you want something unique. (It seems like I can link just about any post to Zazzle at this stage. It’s not intentional. It’s just that Zazzles fingers are getting into a lot of pies lately.)
