Lazyweb: if I want to sell shirt designs, and I’d like it to be a teespring-like thing where the shirt won’t wear through in 3 months, the material isn’t sourced from somebody dumping trash in the ocean or working meth-addled children through 17 hour days and everyone involved is making something approximating a living wage, what shirt vendor do I want?
