Vivienne and Daphne Fight To End Ecocide


Fighting for the environment on the catwalk.

The rainforests of Papua New Guinea are a far cry from the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week but the two came together for Vivienne Westwood’s Fashion Show.

Splashed across an exquisitely designed t-shirt with the slogan “Cool Earth. Papua New Guinea” was Daphne – a girl from Cool Earth’s partner village in eastern Papua New Guinea. Daphne is joining Vivienne in her fight to protect the environment.

No one is more vulnerable to changes in the environment than Daphne and her village, which is at-risk of being washed away by rising sea levels. Their forest is also under threat from being turned into a palm oil plantation.

Vivienne and husband Andreas used their Paris Show to show support for End Ecocide – a campaign that aims to make the destruction of ecosystems a crime. Daphne’s world saving t-shirt will be on sale with Vivienne’s Gold Label Spring/Summer 2015 range. Cool Earth is raising funds to be able to offer Daphne and her village a chance to keep their forest standing.
