Capitalism

We talk a lot about capitalism around these parts because the economic system we currently live within is one of the root causes to many of our issues relating to environmentalism and justice.

For decades we’ve been stuck in the thinking that we can no longer shift away from hypercapitalism (or corporatism), but we can. The world we live in financially is new and modern. We can absolutely change it into something more ethical and sustainable for us all.

Environment impact label

Through a design process we took a stab at creating a back-of-product label that would outline the environmental impact the product you were holding has; whether it’s a piece of food, a processed product, a fashion item, homewares or anything else. We do it with nutritional label on food. We do it with energy efficiency on appliances. We label cigarettes specifically in some countries to discourage use. Why not do it with the environment?
