The world behind a simple t-shirt, in five chapters.

They wanted to see the hidden world behind clothes sold in this country, so they decided to make a T-shirt.

They used Kickstarter to figure out how many shirts to make, and to raise money to pay for them. Their goal was to sell 2,000 shirts. In the end, sold 25,000.


The Planet Money team followed the making of a simple T-shirt from cotton fields, to factories, to container ships. For more information review the npr website:
