Pelikan Limited Edition - Fire
In ancient time, fire ensureed the survival of entire tribe or group. It provide protection from wild animals, provided warmth and light, and enabled the cooking of good.
Millennia later, we learned how to destroy and shape with fire. Mankind made land usable through slash and burn agriculture. Ashes remained and new leife created.
Each year in Singapore, we will have a "haze" period or season. A time where the air PSI went up so high that schools have to be closed and public activities have to be cancelled because the air is not at unhealthly level for the general public.
Where are this "Haze" come from?
Many thanks to the farmer in our good neighbour country, Indonesia. Each year, they will set fire to their farm or forest to make the land reusable.
Our government has been working with the Indonesia government for years. Based on the number of air cleaner sold each year, we think it had been successfull.
In ancient time Olympic, the flames symbolized peace between the nations and it was forbidden to wage war while the Olympic fire was burning.
