Vivienne Westwood and Marie Claire are launching TREES SAVES LIVES, a global project that drives awareness of deforestation. In accordance to the UN General Assembly declaring 2011 as the International year of Forests. Rainforests play a vital role in maintaining a stable global climate and environment; they are vital to the survival of all 7 billion of us. Deforestation is one of the largest contributors to climate change.
People Tree produces this exclusive Vivienne Westwood dress for the benefit of The Society for Environment and Human Development .
"How can humans be happy? For every tree they cut down a future child dies and there are more trees than children. Some people know these things but they plan to end the rainforest in one generation." ~Vivienne Westwood
