An image that has really stuck in my mind that represents the effect of global warming, is the photo of a lone polar bear on its tiny iceberg in the middle of the ocean.
Well, Spanish rug and carpet company Nanimarquina has captured that picture, and transformed it into a statement rug for your home
(complete with 3D felt polar bear).

I think that I might feel a little saddened to see the forlorn polar bear in my home every day, however, the company’s press release says that it:
“reclaims the reality of what is happening to our planet and brings it into the day-to-day realm in an attempt at spurring the individual into reflection and action. Global warming is a bid for hope. It represents our aspirations for a better future and a world that might be.”
Hopefully it will get people’s attention, so that we will work towards a solution to the problem that has caused the destruction of these beautiful creature’s habitat.
