To keep Irregular Times going up on the web, we sell t-shirts with political messages we believe in. We refuse, however, to sell shirts made in sweatshops that profit off the exploitation of third-world people, which is why we only offer made-in-the-USA shirts. An indirect consequence of this, however, is that capital investment remains within [...]
Here at Irregular Times, we don’t accept advertisements because we don’t want any pressure to change what we write. Instead, we sell sweatshop-free t-shirts we’ve designed and use the proceeds to keep the site going. We also set aside a dollar for every shirt we sell and dedicate that money to good political causes in [...]
Stop buying your clothes at Walmart, Target, J.C. Penney, The Gap, and Sears.
In the face of a massive factory disaster that has killed more than eleven hundred Bangladeshi garment workers this year, these corporate apparel chains have refused to sign on to the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh that would create [...]
The Restore the Fourth movement against massive warrantless seizure of papers and effects by the U.S. Government reports significant success in pulling Americans’ attention back to the NSA PRISM scandal with its nationwide day of protest:
Your protests this week brought major local, national, and international media attention to our movement and, more importantly, to [...]
Here at Irregular Times, we sell sweatshop-free t-shirts to keep the website going, but we want to do more than that. Part of our way of being ethical about the t-shirt sales we make is to make sure they’re made and printed in the USA, where labor standards are higher than in the sweatshop-soaked countries [...]
Each time we sell a made-in-the-USA liberal political t-shirt at Skreened, we set aside one dollar to donate to a liberal political cause and another dollar to better the economic condition of poor people outside the United States.
This month, our domestic political donation goes to The Partnership for Civil Justice in recognition of [...]
Whenever we sell one of our sweatshop-free liberal t-shirts, we set aside one dollar to help struggling people overseas and another dollar to fight the good fight for a better political system at home. This month, we direct our international donations to the Foundation Beyond Belief, a secular charitable organization that is working with the [...]
Every time someone takes home one of our liberal sweat-free made in the USA shirts, we set aside a dollar to donate to a good political cause within the United States. This month, our donation goes to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
Conservative columnists and politicians are spending a lot of time lately [...]
Every time someone buys one of Irregular Times’ sweatshop-free shirts, we set aside a dollar to send overseas to help communities in other countries with problems they may face. One of the many problems Uganda faces is education. Uganda ranks 127th in the world in per-capita public spending on education, and only 66.8% of the [...]
To help pay for the costs of the Irregular Times website, we sell a few liberal t-shirts through the Ohio printer Skreened. The shirts we print on are made in the USA because clothing factories in the U.S. are regularly inspected and meet some basic ethical standards for the compensation and safety of workers. This [...]
This morning, I started to research Barack Obama’s nominees to watchdog civil liberties through the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, and what I found about nominee Rachel Brand wasn’t pretty. As one of the members of the Bush administration in the Justice Department specializing in legal policy regarding the “War on Terror,” Brand repeatedly [...]
