“Hawkeyes for the Planet” Shirts Created by UI Business Students


By Aaron Hepker


Thursday is Earth Day and one Iowa City business has created a shirt that supports both nature and the university.

“Hawkeyes for the Planet” were designed by University of Iowa Tippie College of Business students and some of the proceeds are being donated to the Johnson County Heritage Trust to help protect prairies, woodlands, wetlands, and historic sites in the area.

The shirts features green Tiger Hawks shaped into a tree, and are available at Active Endeavors, 138 S. Clinton St., for $20. Five dollars from every shirt – each made with 100 percent organic cotton – benefit the Johnson County Heritage Trust.

Giliann Chaikin, 21-year-old UI Junior from Lone Grove, Ill., is a marketing intern for Active Endeavors who helped design the shirt, said the response from the community has been great.

“We not only wanted to start to celebrate Earth Day as earth month, but we also wanted to carry it onto as a general statement about the importance of the environment.

The shirts are available at the store or online at: http://www.activeendeavorsonline.com/haforplt.html
