With For Your Ice we bring the most beautiful glaciers right into your living room. We are extremely happy to present to you the first in line, featuring two of the most iconic and accessible glaciers of Switzerland, the Vadret da Morteratsch and the Grosse Aletschgletscher.
The design is abstract, yet scientifically true and it aims to stimulate both the eye and the brain. It is a page out of the heroic journal of a glacier that has been on the move for thousands of years. A snapshot, frozen in time. For you and for your ice.
From tiny glaciers on African volcanoes to gigantic ice masses in the Antarctic and from wintry canals in Amsterdam to the permanently frozen tundra in Siberia. Ice, altogether called the cryosphere, is everywhere!
However, our environment is heating up and if there is one thing that ice doesn’t like… In fact, the melting cryosphere is the most visible indicator of climate change. Over the last decades we have observed an ongoing retreat of glaciers across the globe, we experience shorter winter sport seasons, and our satellites record a drastic, continuous decline in the extent of Arctic sea ice.
This has enormous impacts on life as we know it, both from an economical and ecological point of view. A few examples: glacier retreat leads to water conflicts affecting hundreds of millions of people, the disappearance of sea ice accelerates global warming and thawing permafrost releases gargantuan quantities of greenhouse gasses.
So yes, you should care about the cryosphere. Let us help you recogn.ice it.
