World has broken new ground again: it’s the first design house to have created a T-shirt for the United Nations, with the legend YOUN on the front.
   The company says the T-shirts support the UN’s 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development, to be launched on September 25 in New York, at an event attended by US president Barack Obama, 100 world leaders and UN ambassadors.
   They hit World stores, online and offline, from September 25, New Zealand time, and through selected international retailers. The smallest size fits newborns.
   ‘Since our inception in 1989, it has always been part of World’s philosophy to give back, as our company has grown, so has the importance of our awareness and support for local and international charitable organizations,’ said World co-founder Francis Hooper.
   The UN wants to see 193 world leaders commit to the 17 goals, to achieve three extraordinary things in the next 15 years: to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change.
   The full list of 17 goals can be seen at the UN’s Global Goals website, at globalgoals.org.
   World will donate 20 per cent of all sales to the UN. It encourages customers wearing the T-shirts to hashtag #worldbrandglobalgoals to show their support.
