Dec 12, 2015: 196 nations agreed to respond to climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Jun 1, 2015: President Trump pulls out of Paris agreement

Dec 4, 2017: President Trump reduces the size of two national monuments in Utah by some two million acres, the largest rollback of federal land protection in the nation’s history. Patagonia’s headline the morning after reads “The President Stole Your Land”.

This poster is my ode to the tree.

Why Trees? Why now?

Trees give.

Trees reduce the “Greenhouse Effect” and act as carbon “sinks.”
They prevent or reduce soil erosion and water pollution.
Trees reduce water temperatures and prevent or reduce bank erosion and silt.
Trees recharge ground water and sustain stream flow.
Properly managed forests provide lumber, plywood and other wood products on a sustained yield basis.
Trees significantly decrease noise pollution along busy thoroughfares and intersections.

During a 50-year life span, a single tree will generate $30,000 in oxygen, recycle $35,000 worth of water, and clean up $60,000 worth of air pollution!

Our planet is currently losing over 15 billion trees each year. Just one acre of newly planted trees absorbs 2.5 tons of CO2 annually.

Sustainer of life, cleaner of air, moderator of climate, and home to thousands of species, where would we be without trees? And, where would be we without the wisdom to honor them?

Inspired by stories of the Panchatantra, the parrots in picture, are a-buzz with these stories, passing them on from generation to generation.

The mother elephant relies on her legendary memory and wisdom to leads her family through the complicated jungle of life.

Last week (Sept. 21, 2014 – Sept., 27, 2014) was a big one for addressing Climate Change –

Sept., 21, 2014: Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets to draw attention to the greatest threat facing life on earth. It was the biggest climate march in history.

Sept., 23, 2014: Hundreds of leaders and activists participated in the UN Climate Summit at New York to address climate change.

Sept., 25, 2014: President Obama created the largest marine reserve on the planet.

Sept., 22, 2014: Amidst all these encouraging signs of bringing attention to Climate Change, I submitted a design for Patagonia’s Vote the Environment campaign that is being run in conjunction with:
Creative Action Network (a great organization that uses art to highlight and raise funds to support social and environmental justice issues) and
The Canary Project (which, uses art and media to deepen public understanding of the impacts of climate change)

It is available for sale through the C.A.N. website By buying my poster, you will be supporting a great cause.

Simply put, the “Vote the Environment” campaign encourages voting as an empowering action that we can all take to secure the health of our planet and future generations by supporting “candidates who will push hard for clean, renewable energy, restore clean water and air” and “act on behalf of the future and the planet.”

I feel honored to be part of a brand that has always been close to my heart and at the forefront of corporate and environmental responsibility. Patagonia has been making sustainably sourced products that will actually last through years of whatever you put them through. Believe me! My Patagonia fleece (made out of post consumer recycled plastic soda bottles) is still going strong after more than ten years of constant use.

30% of profits from sales will go towards supporting the project, 30% to HeadCount, a non-partisan organization that uses the power of music to register voters and promote participation in democracy, and 40% to the artist.

So, buy a poster, spread the word, and, on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, take the planet into the voting booth!
