Introducing the #WEARABIGISSUE fashion brand. Art apparel that makes more than just a fashion statement.

In association with +rehabstudio and a collection of artists who have donated their talent, energy and creativity to the work of The Big Issue.

'Overheated' is designed by thought provoking UK Street Artist Paul Insect to address 'The Big Issue' of Climate Change. He says:

'It represents both the fragility within the world, and, the current lack of peace throughout it.'

More about the Design...
In a massive act of ‘brand vandalism’ just two days before the launch of the UN COP21 Climate Conference in 2016, 600 anti-advertisement posters were installed in outdoor media spaces throughout the streets of Paris. The posters displayed artwork from over 80 artists from 19 different countries, including this piece by the big named Banksy-collaborator Paul Insect.

The large-scale project aimed to challenge the corporate takeover of the climate change event by addressing the connections between advertising, the promotion of consumerism, and fossil fuel consumption.

This is a Limited Edition artwork printed on an EarthPositive® T-shirt manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power.

EarthPositive® apparel is made to demonstrate the highest possible environmental, social and ethical standards, in one of the world’s most environmentally damaging industries, to promote awareness and take action on climate change. Organic Cotton + Ethically Traded + Carbon Neutral manufacturing = 100% Sustainable 
= 100% EarthPositive®

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
