When you’ve been occupying a coal ship or a crane for several hours, it is inevitable that at some point nature will call. A urine bottle for one of our activists means that no matter how long they’re hanging on, they don’t have to hang on. It’s a small but very important part of a non-violent direct action.
How this gift works ...
Non-violent direct actions are a key part of all Greenpeace’s campaigns, getting the message across to governments or corporations who are committing environmental crimes. Whether we’re closing down a power station or hanging a banner off a building, our activists may need to be sticking around for hours or even days. The last thing they need is to put themselves at risk by having to answer the call of nature, so this reusable plastic bottle (with a sealable lid!) is a vital piece of kit.
