The fight for marriage equality in Ireland has gotten heated.

In May 2015, Ireland is set to vote on marriage equality. The proposed amendment will make it possible for anyone to get married, regardless of gender. Pretty cool, right?

Well, sadly, not everyone is on board. So when the Daintree paper shop noticed anti-gay materials being distributed in their neighborhood, they decided to do something about it.


What if you could turn anti-gay propaganda into something beautiful?

Daintree's genius idea? Recycle those hateful flyers and turn them into confetti! You can even use the hashtag #shredthistweet to submit hateful tweets you see, and Daintree will print them out and transform them into confetti hearts!

Plus, this isn't just any old confetti. The proceeds will go to Yes Equality, an organization dedicated to marriage equality in Ireland.

Take a look at the video below to learn more about "A Shred of Decency" and how you can join them in the fight for marriage equality.

Below, a scientific breakdown that might explain those embarrassing tagged photos of you:
