Toronto Startup: Buy a Vintage Tee, Help Plant a Tree

TORONTO, Dec. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Looking for the perfect green gift that keeps on giving? Enter Defunkd.com, a Toronto based indie marketplace offering genuine vintage tees while also helping plant trees.

"Vintage tees are green symbols because they represent the 3 Rs," says James Applegath, founder of Defunkd. "But we take it a step further: for every t-shirt sold, we sponsor WeForest.org in planting a new tree. We're proudly closing in on 1,000 trees planted so far."

Applegath was awarded as an eBay entrepreneur of the year in 2007 for the innovative way he sold t-shirts from yesteryear. Since then he's been busy creating a comprehensive resource at Defunkd.com which documents these fashionable and collectible garments. Recently, Defunkd expanded with the addition of its own marketplace a.k.a. "Vintage T-Shirt Collective" where tee aficionados from all over the world buy, sell and showcase.

Tees available on Defunkd range in price from $4.99 up to $10,000 for extremely sought after relics of rock history.
