All proceeds go to CAS, a collective which exists to challenge the devastating expanse of the coal industry throughout Scotland. Coal is one of the most carbon intensive industries and current rates of extraction, transportation and combustion are having dramatic effects on local and global ecosystems and the environment.
All these processes have equally horrific effects on human health both here in Scotland and throughout the world.
Despite these facts and because of hypocritical government policies, much of the industrial world is still inextricably linked to coal and Scotland is no different. We at CAS exist to challenge the reliance on this unsustainable fossil fuel and work towards creating positive solutions with communities who pay the true costs of the coal; the fuel which perpetuates and catalyses our current course of ecocide and planetary collapse.
