Save The Trees by Xerces Save The Trees by Xerces
For =Psy-XX's :iconpsy-xx: Earth Day contest ([link])

Edit: OMG! I won first place!! *explodes*

The concept here is rather simple:
The wooden figure is a big tree-hugging eco-warrior, and we can see his love, but the irony is that he's made out of wood. *gasp*
I'm not big of all this eco crap. I do the things I think matter, and to be honest, saving the trees and stopping deforestation is one big thing we need. They're the only things that are gonna take up all the carbon dioxide we're breathing out, so why not. Getting rid of trees means we have less oxygen being given out by them
Recycling is also a good idea.
This touches on the hypocrisy of being 'eco'. All the time the news programs broadcast 'you have an epic carbon footprint' news by sending their reporters out to a remote places- only accessible by non eco-friendly means.
You can't say 'Save the Trees' when you're made out of wood.

So for once, be kind to the planet! Recycle and save the freaking trees!
(I can also be happy with the fact the little mannequin is made of FSC approved wood from sustainable forests.)

Support the planet, Support life, Celebrate The EARTH DAY!

Wowwie! That's a really cool concept! :omfg: I like it!! :XD:

I love plants. :) They're so pretty. It's a shame a lot of those trees being cut down in the South American rain forests are just being stored away in the ocean by the Japanese. :noes:
