While we hope the meal at your next dinner party is anything but crap, famed fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood's collection of tablecloths to benefit non-profit Cool Earth are sure to set the tone for the evening's conversation. Each of the twenty limited-edition, hand signed tablecloths have been digitally printed on a 100% recycled polyester fabric and will save nearly 4 acres of endangered Peruvian rainforest. Hear from Dame Vivienne herself in a video interview, below the fold.

At £1,000, the price tag is not cheap but 100% of profits will be donated to Cool Earth. Through this collaboration, Vivienne aims to raise £100,000 and save 1,700 acres of rainforest from destruction.

In an interview with media, below, Dame Westwood speaks to how we, the human race, have all been trained to consume and, as a result, are not engaged in in the world we live in. Her new show called "Get a Life" will attempt to wake people up to form their own opinions and essentially get a life of their own making. More:

To browse the entire collection of tablecloths, visit Vivienne Westwood. We say browse rather than buy, especially since Dame Vivienne, eco-warrior that she is, has been quoted on numerous occasions discouraging consumption.

Update 6/15: It was previously reported that 77 acres would be saved.
