Creativity vs. Climate Change

What we do

Welcome to Do The Green Thing, a public service for the planet that uses creativity to tackle climate change.

Founded in 2007, Do The Green Thing has spent the last decade working with a global community of creatives including David Shrigley, Paula Scher and Sir Paul Smith to make films, posters, podcasts and products that have inspired more than 45 million people to live more sustainably.

But with a solution to climate change getting no closer, and the consequences of that looming ever larger, more needs to be done.

We need to roll up our sleeves and take issue with modern life, challenging all the assumptions and behaviours that lead us to make eco-unfriendly choices so often.

So that’s what we’re doing.

In every Issue we publish, we take on the unsustainable status quo, putting the most damaging industries, institutions and traditions in our sights and offering imaginative solutions in their place.

Our goal is to make sustainable choices as desirable as unsustainable ones through compelling creative that is researched rigorously, argued originally and made vivid through illustrations, films and campaigns.

By looking at life a little differently – at its culture, or behaviour or politics – and offering thoughtful, provocative alternatives, Do The Green Thing empowers everyone to live a little greener every day.

Who we are

Founded by communication creatives Andy Hobsbawm and Naresh Ramchandani, Do The Green Thing is run out of Pentagram Design’s London headquarters, where Naresh is a Partner.

Do The Green Thing has worked with hundreds of collaborators over the last decade, helping to build a global creative community more engaged with environmental activism. This talented group of people includes illustrators, filmmakers, coders, economists, designers, market researchers and more. Four of them are on Naresh’s team:

Lizzie Reid, Art Director
Zuleika Sedgley, Writer
Ashley Johnson, Writer
Megan Conery, Project Manager
