    Dear All,

    Just wondering if anyone has some suggestions on sustainablity in graphic design. I need to identify how Graphic Design can help the environment, and stuggling to come up with some examples.

    Here is what I have done already:


    How can I use less of the materials?

    - Limited printing as printers uses masses of energy and chemicals
    - Minimse colour and ink schemes
    - Limit use of paper


    How can I reuse the materials used?

    - Reuse relevant materials


    Can the materials used be recycled?

    - make sure that the materials used are recycable materials
    - recycle all applications at the end of the product life cycle
    - recycle ink cartrages and packaging
    - use recycable materials e.g. paper

    Any suggestions will be useful.

    There's also aspects relating to computers: energy efficient and recyclable computers and monitors; sleep mode; switching off at night.
    Or are these unrelated?

    No, your suggestions are very helpful :) Didn't think about the ‘computer’ aspect relating to graphic design.

    Thank you very much.
