Originally, we were trying to think of ways to make the movement visible, but manufacturing new t-shirts or wristbands or buttons seemed contradictory to our goals — so we hit on the idea of marking participation with something that most people would just throw away. If you want, you can clip a bread tie to your purse, backpack or shoelaces or slide it under a transparent phone case. Write it on it. Paint on it. Doowhutchyalike. Be careful though — the bread tags fall off if they aren’t well-affixed.
At Climate Pledge Collective, we’re a no-ego organization and, since we launched, the green circles of the youth climate strike movement have started gathering momentum — so cut yourself a circle from green felt or fabric and pin it on to a shirt or bag to show your support for the young people demanding a stable climate.
