Tired of Coal? Wear It On Your Sleeve. Well, Wrist.

I'm tired of coal After reading article after article about the environmental horrors of coal, coal ash, and mountaintop removal, you might want a flashing fluorescent sign that says “I am tired of coal.”  Maybe you could settle for a bracelet?

Imtiredonline.com, a company that sells bracelets proclaiming “I’m tired of…” to support charities (the charity is different depending on what you’re tired of), has added a bracelet for those sick of coal.  Actress and environmentalist Daryl Hannah recently wore one at a protest against mountaintop-removal coal mining in West Virginia.

The bracelets are made from recycled tires (Get it? I’m “tired” of…), and cost $10. Half of each sale is donated to the Rainforest Action Network.

Other  “I’m tired of…” causes include animal cruelty, global warming, and discrimination. To learn more, or to buy a bracelet, click here.
