If We Don't Start Acting Now—Nature Will!

Core77 announced "Sustainable Refrainables" community challenge in association with the San Francisco chapter of AIGA to support their fourth biennial Compostmodern conference.

"Sustainable Refrainables" is a poster design competition celebrating words of persuasion. Designers were invited to share those mantric phrases they find most powerful in communicating positive action.

“Treat the earth well—it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children.” —Ancient Indian Proverb

Inspired by this proverb I used design matched by the power of the words to raise social and environmental awareness.
