I love all the sexy and colorful visuals.  Here is a very good infographical movie illustrating  the principles of nuclear technology for a French energy company.

Hmm….For me, nuclear technology is quite dangerous somehow. I still remembered the horrible scenes of the Chernobyl Disaster  TV news report in 1986 when I was  still a little kid.  Anyone still remember this accident? Nowadays, most of our electricity is generated in this way already. Could be have other greener and safer alternatives?

作為設計師,你設計的東西影與我們的生活有密切關係,請支持 “Design can change” pledge。當你設計時,鼓勵 “sustainable industry practices”及環保的設計,由今天開始為地球做多一點!

I fully support this initiative. You can do it too! As a designer, what you do is important which can make the difference! Please let designers around you know this initiative and pledge. Do more for our environment now!

Design can change is an effort to bring together the world’s graphic design community to address the issues surrounding climate change.

Designers craft much of the world’s products/media and as such are well positioned to build awareness around this issue while encouraging more sustainable industry practices.”

— Transcript of presentation by Susan Szenasy who is editor of Metropolis mag, while addressing the AIGA 2003 crowd of designers. She had some pretty strong words for us backed up with solid facts.

“But I say that you—collectively, as graphic designers—are starting other fires, metaphorically speaking… You are responsible for helping to create 40% of North America’s solid waste; paper accounts for 81 million tons of waste annually..

Furthermore, the pulp and paper industry is the third largest industrial buyer of elemental chlorine. Chlorine is used to whiten paper, a process which is linked to a proven cancer-causing chemical called dioxin.”

You can earn and shop by recycling! 回收也可以助你賺錢和購物!

Scoll down for the English version!
“The more you recycle, the more you earn”.  費城的一所回收公司,名為 RecycleBank,為了鼓勵家庭回收,他們提供 barcode 回收筒。他們回收時會 scan 你的回收筒,記錄你的回收重量,然依據你的回收量計分,你可以在網站查看分數,分數可以換成購物禮券,更可以用作慈善用途。真的很 creative! 希望我們香港也可以多做回收,天氣越來越怪,日本的櫻花開早了,下雪的地方不夠雪了,我們冬天不再穿毛衣了!

由今天開始為地球做一點東西,我每次也把喝完的汽水罐儲起,放到回收箱或給收集汽水罐的婆婆。我在公司 email signature 寫了 “please consider the environment before you print this email!” 你也由今天開始保護我們的環境,積小成多!

Philadelphia-based RecycleBank creates incentive for you to do more recycling. How does it work? A unique barcode is provide on the RecycleBank contiainers. Household put their recyclable waste to the bin. Collection trucks scan and weigh the recycling stuff, the more the household contribute, more more you earn for the points – up to 35 USD per month. You can track your points at RecycleBank website and redeem coupouns which can be used to purchase at major chains such as Whole Foods, RiteAid and Starbucks, as well as local companies that choose to be part of the program. More than 250 businesses currently participate. You can also donate your points to charity.
