Carbon Footprint tea towel

Climate change is the most urgent threat facing human existence today. We’re in the midst of a global crisis. And if we want to give future generations a chance to fulfil their dreams, we have to take radical action. On this tea towel, we borrow a line from a W B Yeats' poem (‘Aedh / He wishes for the cloths of Heaven’) in the sincere hope that if we keep a careful eye on our carbon footprint we can leave our children an environment worth living in...

The full poem is:

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Specifications: Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 48cm x 70cm. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
