For years now I’ve been waiting for Ye Oldye Ecology Symbol to once again become the ubiquitous cultural icon it was in the late ’60’s and early ’70’s. Has it, though, and I just … don’t know that? Has The Little “e” That Could* become huge again, by any chance? I figure by now it must have. Symbols from the ’60’s seem quite the rage these days. And, except for the peace sign (which of course we now see everywhere), you can’t get more ’60’s than the “e” ecology symbol.
So, fully confident that I’m dorkily late suggesting this: Let’s bring back the “e” symbol for ecology and Earth Love and conservation and Being Green all that most excellent stuff that we need to do or die!
I mean, right? Ye Oldye “e” ecology symbol is the best. It used to be everywhere.
Come back, li’l e! It’s your time again!
(*The symbol is actually a combination of the letters “e” for environment, and “o” for orgasm organism. True.)
