Share by Patrick Cox
Designer Patrick Cox wanted to reduce the amount of new stuff we buy by getting people to give away their old stuff. So he designed a poster to help people share the things they don’t need anymore.
“Do The Green Thing is about encouraging action so I wanted to make a poster that would help you to do something… give away the stuff you don’t need anymore.
“We all have great books, music, clothes even furniture that we’ve used and loved but just don’t need in our lives anymore. Rather than let them sit around, unused and unloved, we should give them to someone who will do something with them.”
“It would be lovely if people would cut out these labels and use them to share their unwanted stuff — at the office, at the bus-stop, or even outside their front door. I have been leaving stuff on the street for years and it is always gone by morning…”
Life’s better when you share – according to a survey by the co-op, 80% of us feel happier when we share with others.
