A Dublin based stationary company has launched a new product which transforms negative posters and articles on gay rights into confetti ahead of next month’s referendum on Marriage Equality.
Daintree Paper based on Camden Street has kick-started the initiative called A Shred of Decency, which will shred negative literature into confetti with all proceeds going to Marriage Equality.
“At Daintree, we believe in making beautiful things out of paper so when paper was used to print some pretty ugly lies in the run up to the Marriage Equality referendum we wanted to do something about it,” a video posted to their website said.
“A Shred of Decency confetti is made from 100pc recycled lies. We want to collect any negative and dishonest flyers, leaflets and online literature and recycle them into something positive.
“All proceed will go to Marriage Equality.
“If we raise enough money for Marriage Equality hopefully loads of lovely couples will finally be able to get married,” the video said.
The Camden Street based company hasn’t forgotten about social media either and those hoping to shred negative tweets into confetti can also partake in the Shred of Decency initiative.
“If you see any negative and dishonest tweets about the marriage referendum on Twitter - we can shred these tweets for you too! Just reply to the dishonest tweet and add #shredthistweet.
“We will then print the tweet off and add it to the pile. We’ll also send a tweet to the source of the dishonesty and thank them for their very generous help in supporting YES Equality,” the website states.
Two parents-to-be are sitting in their pretty Dublin home, counting down the final three months to the birth of their first baby with delighted, nervous anticipation. Pregnancy is a very precious time, but carries inherent vulnerabilities, and most people wouldn't dream of upsetting a mum-to-be at such a delicate time.
