Yep, global warming will be a major issue in a “not so far away” future. I guess that nordic designers waiting for bikini girls in the streets are quite happy about the weather changes, but they still might be interested in taking a look at the “Design can change” website.
The website takes a serious look at the problem, its causes, and on how designers can make a change. A few of the things to consider are the following:
- Is the project necessary and targetted enough? Billions are waisted in untargetted printed advertising, don’t be one of those unefficient designers.
- Work with local suppliers, minimize transports.
- Use recycled material as much as possible.
- Encourage your suppliers to provide environnement-conscious solutions.
This is only part of the list of things you can do easily, you can and you should discover all of them on the website: www.designcanchange.org
