Sale by Patrick Cox
Designer Patrick Cox has created a wickedly subversive take on the common sale sign, questioning our need to consume so much and at such great cost to the earth.
“It’s a reminder to me as much as anybody else,” says Patrick. “It’s so easy to get caught up in the vanity, boredom, anxiety and marketing that convinces us to buy more than we need. Buying less makes you feel better, saves you money and lets you Do The Green Thing all at the same time.”
Our passion for anything and everything on-trend is depleting our natural resources at an alarming rate. The fashion industry is also the largest user of water in the world. Let’s turn our on-trend weakness off.
Download Patrick’s poster here, cut out the sign and stick it on the window of any shop that sells what nobody needs. Let’s give everyone in a hurry to buy something new a little pause for thought.
Join the world’s biggest celebration of our brilliant planet and sign up for Earth Hour on 29 March at 8.30 pm.
