earth hour

Last year I featured Do The Green Thing’s poster series, as part of their countdown to Earth Hour.  This year they’re back with another poster countdown, where every day they are releasing a poster by some top artists, including David Shrigley, Sir Quentin Blake, Philip Tracey, Sir Paul Smith, and more.  The posters seek to inspire people to live more sustainable lives, through actions such as eating less meat, eating seasonally, cutting down on car use, and I think this year’s offerings are their best yet:

You can see the whole poster series here on Do The Green Thing’s Tumblr page, and even purchase individual prints.

If you’re unfamiliar with Earth Hour, it’s a global event, where the idea is that you switch all of your lights off for an hour to celebrate your commitment to the planet, and living an eco friendly life.  This year it’s on Saturday 29th March at 8:30pm – this Saturday.  Are you in?!
