This shopping bag is by New York based visual artist Hayal Pozanti. The black canvas tote features the text "25 percent of the Earth's species could be headed for extinction by 2050 due to global warming." The other side features a visual translation of the same text in Pozanti's invented alphabet of abstract signs. We like to think of this bag as an amulet you can carry with you to protect the Earth.
