Stella McCartney has teamed up with Greenpeace on a capsule collection to celebrate Earth Day on Thursday.

The designer has always been a champion of the environment and sustainable fashion, and now she's collaborated with the environmental organisation to raise awareness of their Act for The Amazon campaign, which aims to put an end to the Amazon rainforest's devastating deforestation.

"I hope things do not return to normal in 2021 - rather, I hope we return to life more mindful, particularly when it comes to our decisions. Precious forests, like the Amazon, should not be destroyed to produce industrial meat sold around the world," McCartney said in a statement, reports WWD.

The tie-dye tees and sweatshirts have been inspired by vintage Greenpeace poster designs, and are available in neutral colours.

Back in November last year, she told British Vogue that she was pushing for more sustainability in the fashion industry.

"I have such high hopes and aggressive goals for change that time passes me by. But, obviously, time is critical. There's lots to be done," Stella explained.

The designer has also teamed up with environmentalists to spread the message of climate change issues in her new #StellaTalks series. Filmmaker Alice Aedy, who is the co-founder of Earthrise, is one of the first guests in Stella's new series, which will kick off in the Stella McCartney Bond Street store in London, as well as being streamed live on Instagram, on Thursday.

Leila Salazar-López, the executive director of Amazon Watch, activist Nina Gualinga, and actress Nathalie Kelley will also be joining the discussion.
