Environmental Button

Description
The slogan on this button can be taken two ways. It can be a warning that if we don’t recycle the millions of tons of trash we produce, we’ll be buried under it eventually. Or it can be taken as a tongue-in-cheek threat by the wearer, who’ll kill you if you don’t recycle. Either way it tells us where the wearer stands on the issue and invites comments.
