Designer and campaigner Vivienne Westwood has designed this season’s London Fashion Week Festival (LFWF) tote bag inspired by her Autumn-Winter 2017/18 show entitled ‘Ecotricity’. The tote bag adorns a map graphic, Vivienne Westwood’s representation of NASA’s projection of the effect of climate change on the world should the earth’s temperature rise by four degrees or more.
The designer and climate change activist’s solution is simple: SWITCH to Green Energy ‘Ecotricity’ and STOP Climate Change.
The tote bag, made from 100% organic cotton, will be available for purchase at London Fashion Week Festival for £20 each. For each sale of the tote bag, 50% of the profit will be donated to Vivienne Westwood’s choice of charity, Fuel Poverty Action.
Fuel Poverty Action works with pensioners’ groups, tenants’ associations and others who provide practical aid in the form of blankets, draft-proofing, as well as helping people to get their debts written off.
Vivienne Westwood said: “Global warming is at the tipping point. If we go past it, we can’t stop it. All the methane kicks in. We’re there right now. Stop Climate Change. All our friends are going to SWITCH to Green Energy – Ecotricity – and I am happy to design a tote that communicates this important message.”
Vivienne Westwood is now powering her own fashion business with green energy and is campaigning for the fashion industry and the public to switch away from dirty fossil fuels to green energy with the goal of getting half of Britain powered by renewable energy.
Vivienne said: “We must all demand a fast transition to clean energy. We require a Green Economy for human life to remain sustainable and flourish.
“It is so ridiculously easy to switch to green energy.”
The majority of premises run by Vivienne Westwood within the UK have now transitioned to green energy and green gas with Ecotricity, and the UK company aims to be entirely supplied by Ecotricity by next year.
Ecotricity was founded in 1995 as the world’s first green energy company and now supplies almost 200,000 customers across Britain from a growing fleet of wind and sun parks.
Tickets for London Fashion Week Festival (LFWF), formerly known as London Fashion Weekend, are now available online from London Fashion Week Festival. Further information about Ecotricity and switching energy suppliers to this green option can be found online at Ecotricity.
