Designer and activist Vivienne Westwood stands in the rainforest at sunset.

She’s galvanised her friends to join the cause including Kate Moss, Lily Cole, Sadie Frost and Stella Tennant, and has dedicated two of her fashion shows to her rainforest charity of choice, Cool Earth.

In 2013, Vivienne and her husband Andreas travelled with The Times to visit the rainforest project in partnership with the Asháninka community that their donation will fund and said that “the Asháninka are kind and elegant people who care about the forest which is their home.

Following a week spent living with the Asháninka in the Peruvian Amazon, Vivienne has lobbied the Peruvian government on their Forestry Programme. Her zeal for rainforest protection is incomparable.

Vivienne has designed a range of T-shirts exclusively for Cool Earth, as well as raising awareness through her work. All proceeds go towards rainforest protection in our partnerships.

As Cool Earth’s patron, Vivienne’s support is unparalleled. Find out more about her work with Cool Earth and how Vivienne Westwood £1 million donation is helping here.

Cool Earth has a real plan to save the rainforest. Cool Earth is our only hope. Vivienne Westwood
