    Thumbnail I once heard a UX designer say, “Colleges didn’t even teach what I now do every day.” My hope is that sustainable graphic designers will be able to say that one day, too. Right now sustainable design is a profession for only a few self-educated designers, but is generally ignored in the average graphic design [...]

    ThumbnailThink websites and data don’t use water? Think again. Waste is usually associated with tangible things, but the data cloud is not as intangible as we think. In fact large data farms like Amazon’s blow through an estimated 360,000 gallons of water a day just to keep things cool. Most people know that server farms are energy [...]

    The other day I listened to a fantastic webinar on Packaging Sustainability from the  2 DEGREES NETWORK featuring Katherine O’Dea of  GREEN BLUE .
