Orange is a very bright colour, which is pretty good when hunting season rolls around. For example, during Italy's hunting season it is quite normal for tens of people to die in hunting accidents or "accidents". Italy's hunting season is kind of like Finnish midsummer.
We've long reminded people to stay safe around water during midsummer, so Italy's hunting season has inspired us to remind you to stay safe in the forest and wear orange! Would the amount of accidents could be reduce if someone in orange happened to step in front of the crosshairs?
We read on the news that Walmart is pulling some Soviet-themed T-shirts off their shelves because communism is a hateful ideology. Selling their symbols is disrespectful towards the victims of totalitarian socialists and it spreads hatred, they say.
This is a subject of great interest to us because from time to time things we sell and how we sell them has been deemed offensive to some. We don't think people turn into bitter communists or hateful nazis from symbols you can buy, but that's just what we think. Freedom of expression is something we take pretty seriously.
Here's a sneak-peek to a bag we stumbled across. The whole lot was going to be destroyed for some reason (hmm), but we think it's a better idea to sell them to anyone who wants one. What do you think; are we doing the right thing here or is this a sign of bad taste?
There are a lot of good reasons to venture out into nature, and one of them is army reserve stuff. In the accompanying article we'll open up a bit about what sort of gear you should pack along for this kind of excursion.
