I would not have any issue with paying an extra fee for fair-trade, organic T-
Shirt. That most are not at FLOSS events is a reason why I sometimes do not 
opt for a T-Shirt at all.

The very cheap approach of T-Shirt doesn´t go along well with any kind of 
idealism. Its very nice to hear in retrospect that the DC15 T-Shirts have been 
fair trade – I didn´t know that.
