Hatley, the company that “gets clothes to nature,” has extended a “pun” way for consumers to become involved in the company’s environmental practices with its first ever t-shirt caption contest to benefit the Hatley Global Water Initiative.

In a call for entries, Hatley has asked consumers to “get your pun on” with a contest that will see the winning caption illustrated by Hatley’s design team and made into a t-shirt, from which 100% of the sales profit will be distributed as a part of the Hatley Global Water Initiative.  The winning t-shirt will be released in time for the United Nations World Water Day 2008 (March 22), an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.

“We continuously adopt environmental practices to ensure we are producing our clothing and gift items in the most environmentally conscious manner possible, using materials that are known to be safe,” said Chris Oldland, president, Hatley.  “The t-shirt contest is a great way to involve our customers as well as let them know what we are doing as a company to protect the environment.”

The deadline for caption submissions is September 30, 2007 at midnight Eastern Standard Time.  All submissions must be made through www.hatleynature.com.

In addition to having a wearable recognition of their achievement, the first place winner also will receive a $500 Hatley gift certificate.  Second and third place winners each will receive a Hatley gift certificate, $300 and $100 respectively.
