While undyed, unbleached organic cotton T-shirts are the absolute greenest new tees to buy, they aren't always the easiest to find. If you can't find them, do the next best thing: Choose white T-shirts over colored shirts for working out in. A typical T-shirt requires about 6.6 gallons of water to dye and process from white to colored. Choosing a conventional white T-shirt helps saves water, reduces exposure to chemical dyes and saves energy. If everyone did this, we'd save billions of gallons of water.
