The Design Green Project was inaugurated to give designers and artists an outlet to participate in a one-of-a-kind project by being part of the solution, rather than the problem, of the Global Warming Crisis. This project, in summary, is a design competition and an way to raise money for a good cause. Design Providence has won the “Design green” Award for their Personal Shopping Vehicle, Landor Associates won the Packaging awarde for their Cascade Green Packaging and also gained an honourable mention.
Melbourne-based Plastics & Chemicals Industries Association (PACIA), has joined forces with Sustainability Victoria, to promote the concept of design for sustainability. See article. Download information on D4S with Plastics
