Radical Tea Towel - Carbon Footprint

Regular price $16.00

Shipping calculated at checkout.
Climate change is the most urgent threat facing human existence today. We’re in the midst of a global crisis. If we want to give future generations a chance to fulfil their dreams we have to take radical action. On this tea towel is a line borrowed from a W B Yeats' poem (‘Aedh / He wishes for the cloths of Heaven’) in the sincere hope that if we keep a careful eye on our carbon footprint we can leave our children an environment worth living in...

The full poem is:

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
