Dear Rebels, From October 7th onwards, Extinction Rebellion will be creating large movable structures from flat-pack sustainable FSC timber boxes. Each box is 60cm x 60cm x 30cm, and can be easily carried by one person. It's BYOB (Bring Your Own Box!) When the boxes are connected together, they form a single large structure. When they need to be moved, they can be quickly disconnected, and moved to another site. When stacked in different configurations, they can be also used for seating, storage, shelter, or green walls/planting, and have attachment points built in. This is not just a stunt - it is an idea for how we could build in the future: circular-economy thinking instead of large concrete megastructures. Each box costs £7.50 for materials to make on a CNC cutter, and is strong, lightweight, durable, zero waste, and fun to use. They are designed and made here in the UK, and Extinction Rebellion have been given free licence and cutting costs to make them. If you would like to donate to help build a huge structure please click through. (Minimum donation of £7.50 please) You will be contacted to ask if you would like to join in to build or carry the boxes (optional). If you want to join in, we will give instructions of where to collect the box. You can decorate each one with your own personal XR message or artwork, or come together in groups to make a larger message across several boxes, before adding them to the structure. Thank you for your support. Lets make something big!
Love and Rage
