Bono Launches T-shirt Line For Africa

Rocker and humanitarian BONO is hoping to save lives in Lesotho, Africa by selling T-shirts. The U2 star has recruited celebrities like LINDSAY LOHAN, NAOMI WATTS, ROSARIO DAWSON, GARY OLDMAN and KATE BOSWORTH among others to model the new ONE poverty campaign shirts in print ads, shot by pal and former model HELENA CHRISTENSEN. The T-shirts, which were designed by Bono's wife ALI HEWSON for the couple's Nude clothing label, are all being manufactured at a factory in Lesotho, where HIV and AIDS is rife. The Irish rocker hopes that jobs his new T-shirt line creates will help improve conditions and the quality of life for thousands of struggling Africans. He says, "The money spent on this T-shirt could save a life."

obviously the official press release had naomi watts listed first of the celebrities participating in this event, followed by kate bosworth, then the others.who the hell is lindsay lohan and what's the big deal of this tabloid fodder to be given such importance as if she were leading in this campaign for charity?

what i would like to know is if these t shirts are fairtrade and organic.given the water foot print of cotton,[ uzbekistan is turning into a desert because of the water used on cotton ] the use of pesticides and herbicides, the bad working conditions in fields and sweatshops it seems rather strange to use t shirts to help people.
