Green Grass Gas

Green Grass Gas Vivienne Westwood Ecotricity

In line with last week’s post about switching your electricity & gas to a green supplier, this week’s post is to introduce the new Green Grass Gas t-shirt & explain what it means.
Through a process called anaerobic digestion, methane gas can be produced from organic matter, in this case from cut grass.
Ecotricity founder Dale Vince has been promoting this technology & planning permission has just been granted for them to build their first Mill at Sparsholt College in Hampshire.
It is estimated that Britain could produce 66% of domestic and commercial gas demand from grass on marginal farmland by 2035.
Producing gas from grass is a carbon neutral process because the gas released has only recently been absorbed from the atmosphere by the grass, whereas the gas in fossil fuels has been absorbed from the atmosphere millions of years ago, & then stored.
By re-introducing a system of crop rotation on our farmland whereby land is left unused for a period of time, enough grass can be produced. This has other benefits as well. A habitat for wildflowers & wildlife is provided. The soil naturally regains its fertility & chemical fertilizers are not needed. In fact, the left over waste produced from the gas making process is a great natural fertilizer.
Kind of a win, win situation.
Green Grass Gas is also a great alternative to Fracking & hopefully it will supplant that dangerously, toxic technique.
We at Westwood support Ecotricity & the Green Grass Gas project.
The t-shirt comes in 5 sizes, is in 100% organic cotton & comes in one colour, grey.
The t-shirt is exclusive to Worlds End shop.
Ray Noir kindly models for us again.

‘The Masque of the Red Death’

Politicians ARE Criminals! – I am not just referring to the petty pilfering that the recent expenses scandal uncovered or even the policy changes that they make whilst in Government benefitting corporations that the MP in question gets to work for after their term in office (if they are not already working for them whilst in office). I am referring to murder which most people think is one of the worst crimes. Continue reading

Special Pieces in Worlds End

Worlds End Shop

Keziah (see Kizzy post) & Johannes recently helped us by modelling some of the new Worlds End special pieces in the shop right now.
These include a makeover of the Infinity Poncho from Gold Label AW14.
For the first time this is available in a men’s size and is printed with Vivienne’s hand-drawn Climate-Economy graphic.
The Poncho is made from 100% Austrian Loden & can be worn as an outer piece like a heavy jumper.

The Propaganda Shoulder Bag is part of a series of re-makes from the AW05 Propaganda Collection.

The Giant Tooth Jewellery is exclusive to King’s Road. Johannes’ tattoo is amazing with it of course…

Lastly we are very proud to introduce new t-shirt colours made using 100% vegetable dye.
The colours of these change/fade slightly with every wash and are not as even as would normally be expected, but that’s what makes them special & they feel amazing.
Available with different prints.
All garments shown are made in the UK.
