This cap was inspired by the brave and tenacious youth climate activist from Sweden, Greta Thunberg, whose Friday Climate Strikes and public speaking challenges world leaders to take immediate action against climate change.

It is the second in Cynthia’s series Climate Change EmergencyCaps which uses baseball caps worn-backwards for the hat’s shape. This relatable format springs from her research images of early NYC firefighter helmets and those of a 1929 London Ladies Fire Brigade helmet… and a little “artistic license.”

The color OJ-Red signifies “emergency,” because it’s urgently critical we’re all engaged in putting-out the fires of global warming if our species is to survive!
