This is not business as usual.

When news of this week’s Climate Strike spread, THE ICONIC staff’s interest was piqued and, organically, colleagues felt compelled to join the cause. “Are you going??” the Google Chats and Slacks ricocheted around the floors.

Yeah. We’re going.

According to the Not Business As Usual website, “The number one reason people won’t strike for climate action is work.” So we’re proud that THE ICONIC, in solidarity with young people all over the world today, as well as many of our brands and partners, has signed the Not Business As Usual pledge to support staff who choose to rally for climate change action on Friday 20th September.

Today, our teammates made signs, started an info-sharing WhatsApp group, laced up their comfiest sneakers and marched alongside the millions of environmentally-aware school students who are driving this call for action.

Can we say, some of your signs were incredibly poignant. Others frankly gave us a LOL.

Head over to @theiconicau Instagram stories to see what we mean, plus all the action from today's Sydney rally.
