Causes Climate Change is about telling the other side of the story. Everywhere you look there are giant adverts tempting us to drive bigger cars, fly on more holidays, invest in 'no questions asked' financial products, eat more processed food and most of all consume more needless stuff.

But it's not safe: for us or the planet. We're more depressed than ever and that retail therapies changing our climate.

Causes Climate Change will show case retaliation. Plant subversive thoughts that inspire others to get out there and challenge business as usual. The clock is ticking; it is time to act.

Continue scrolling to see other causes of climate change and feel free to download the artwork and print stickers and posters to put up. And if you do why not take some snaps for this site. (ps if you have your own downloadable artwork for sharing then email us and we'll do it)

Proper Green Graffiti

Horticulturists of yore did this to add interest and age to their gardens, and write rude messages on each others north-facing walls. 

You will need.. 
several clumps of moss
1 can of beer (or pot of natural yogurt)
1 teaspoon sugar (half a teaspoon for yogurt)
blender or paint mixer bit on power drill

Soak the moss in water to remove dirt and small stones that may damage your blender or your eyeball.  Blend together the moss, beer (or yogurt) and sugar.  Do this in small batches as moss can be pretty tangly on blender blades.  You should end up with something that looks like a green smoothie.

Apply by painting onto suitable surface, and within a few weeks the moss should reconstitute and grow.  A suitable surface is something that is shady and not too dry.  Think about where moss grows.  You may want to help it along by spray misting your mossy message with water now and then.

An alternative use of this moss medium is squeezing it into balloons (a funnel and an old shampoo bottle works ok) and splatting them against out of reach walls.  Some suggest mixing in some non-toxic paint for added eye-catchiness, but that's up to you.   

Pictures coming soon.
