The REMINDER is a timepiece to wear every day. Reminding the person who wears it, and the people who see it about the problems of both pollution and global warming.
The artists philosophy about the timepiece:
Case is in matte rusty finish, just as the dirty surface of the earth, underneath the rust there is gold; the fantastic planet we have and love! Laser cutting makes the gold visible under the rusty surface. The crown shows the globe in gold. Only number visible on the clock is 11, this is to remind us about that we need to make changes in our behavior, now! There is still time for us to make it happen, as to say in ” the eleventh hour”, displayed date are in large size, so that we are reminded of every new amazing day in life. On each side there are reminding words, one side showing bad things for the globe and on the other side shows the good things we receive when we make the needed changes for the environment.

For every sold "The Reminder" we donate 25 USD to The Perfect World Foundation.
The Perfect World Foundation was founded in Sweden in 2010 by Ragnhild (Rags) & Lars Jacobsson after many years of work and private support of animal and nature projects in different areas around the world. Our planet and our biodiversity have faced and are facing major problems. Every year thousands of animal species is extinct due to human influences, and this eradication will eventually affect the life on earth that we are familiar with today.
