I got a great email last week about a great new project: The Feedback Loop, which launched today (I wanted to post about this earlier, but I'm running around like mad and feeling a little overwhelmed... sorry Pam!). The Feedback Loop Project is a non-profit initiative which links up 25 fantastic graphic designers to create a series of 50 letterpress journals. The paper and stock for the journals was donated by Mohawk Fine Papers's Mohawk Loop eco line. The journals are being sold in Felt & Wire, a specialty paper shop in NY, or you can shop for one online of course.
'Mooko' is a project which works to help solve environmental issues surrounding dairy farming. Anyone see Food Inc.? Then you know all about this. The pilot project proposes using prepaid glass jars that you refill with organic, sustainable milk at a vending machine in supermarkets. The project is designed to help spread awareness of some environmental issues surrounding dairy farming as well as minimize waste, since many milk containers are not recyclable.
