One of the advantages of working upstairs to an Architecture practice is that you get exposed to their world. Their materials, publications, way of doing things, etc. So last week on the way to the lunch room I spotted this great piece of marketing for a tiling manufacturing company.
The striking thing about it is the message on the box.
Why I like this piece is that I’ve felt that part of our responsibility as designers in the cause of sustainability is to come up with ideas that adjusts the end-user’s expectations and behaviors. In this case, they’ve gone 1 step beyond the usual expectations of using recyclable materials and made it easy for you to send it back to them so they could recycle it for you.
This piece says to me, “we care so much about how our products affect the environment that we’re willing to pay to take them back.”
