Guy’s check out this great project ‘COALSTORE‘ by good friend Paul Smyth, behind Crepe City and Something & Son

COALSTORE is a new project by Something & Son producing ornate pieces of wearable art from the valuable material coal. The project seeks to use the power of beautifully crafted objects and consumerism to tackle climate change through the everyday and familiar form of a shop.

Coal is globally responsible for 44 per cent of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions and unless we leave remaining global reserves in the ground, or don’t burn them, the climate will warm to ever more dangerous levels.

By turning Coal into art and fashion pieces that are never burnt, we are able in a small way to reduce carbon emissions. With every new piece of work created and sold COALSTORE will lock more carbon in art.

To increase the total amount of carbon the project saves, for every small piece of jewellery sold, we also store and bury a larger deposit of Coal.
