The brothers behind Akomplice have captured the essence of the organization's work with a T-shirt collection called the Protect Species. Animals on the T-shirts -- the cheetah, flamingo and lion -- were chosen to represent and remind us of the earth's limited resources.
The collection is launching today, November 8, and 10 percent of the sales will be donated to Nature Conservancy. Protect Species T-shirts can be purchased at Akomplice Clothing.com. Here's a look at what you'll find there:
