Don’t Ruin by Andy Ward
Illustrator Andy Ward has created a vintage poster for a vintage climate change tip – drive less and walk more. His dynamic and provocative poster contrasts the rage and rush of driving with the peace and happiness of going by foot.
“My poster is an invitation to slow down and smell the flowers,” says Andy. “To break the habit of needing to be everywhere at once and instead letting your feet take you there instead. They evolved for that very reason, to take us places. Enjoy planet earth from the beauty of your own two feet, ‘Walk Don’t Ruin’.”
Cars are responsible for nearly 15% of the world’s CO2 emissions. They’ve made us lazier, our cities hazier, and they have drowned out the sounds of the street with their revs and roars. Instead of driving, go by foot and feel on top of the world.
If a journey is more than a stones-throw but less than a mile then you can walk it.
