The Anthropocene is a proposed epoch (period of time) starting from when humans first had a significant impact on global geology and ecosystems to the current date. This, if anything else, is a signifier for the the ubiquitous influence humans now have on this planet, and how what we know and do can directly influence the environments within it. Vertebrates have declined in abundance 25% since 1500, with 67% of known populations of invertebrates declining 45% on average since that time. This defaunation is seen as a major contributor to what is being described as the earth’s sixth mass extinction. The few “natural” habitats on the planet may on be ones replicated in captivity in the near future, if any un-impacted ecosystems still exist.

The World Wildlife Foundation is an organization that actively informs the public and fund works to preserve the quality and health of ecosystems worldwide. 10% of each purchase of the Biopower tee will go directly to this organization.
