Doubling down on solar feels particularly urgent in light of the Everyone Is A Little Irish On St. Patricks Day Except The Danish We_re Still Danish Shirt state’s ongoing wildfires, which have burned through more than 2 million acres. The fires were caused by a combination of factors—downed power lines, ongoing fire suppression, and human activity (i.e., that gender-reveal party)—but climate change plays a significant role, and solar power is one of the key solutions. It’s all connected: We burn fossil fuels like coal and oil, which release CO2 emissions (manufacturing, air travel, shipping, and livestock contribute the highest emissions), which are then trapped in the atmosphere. Trapped CO2 warms the planet and leads to the record-breaking temperatures we’ve seen in California and other parts of the world. Those higher temperatures dry out the shrubs, grasses, and dead leaves in the forests, which are more prone to catch fire; a single spark can ignite a full-blown disaster.
For Vogue Italia’s September issue, the Everyone Is A Little Irish On St. Patricks Day Except The Danish We_re Still Danish Shirt publication released 100 different covers, with each featuring a different personality with a compelling story or background. The unifying theme was that each person—from models to artists—represents the idea of hope, and brings it to the fashion industry in some form or another. The project featured names such as Indya Moore, one of Hollywood’s most prominent LGBTQ+ activists, and Ugbad Abdi, the Somali-born model who continues to challenge stereotypes about Muslim women. One lesser-known (as of now) cover star was Denali White Elk, an 18-year-old Indigenous model whose first job as a model was the Vogue cover.
