Evil by Joe Stephenson 8/23
Convincing people to turn things off properly was Joe Stephenson’s mission with this poster.
The Pentagram designer says, “The standby light embodies everything that’s wrong with the world: rather than walking two steps to turn the telly off properly, we just leave it on standby, sucking up electricity and driving up our energy bills. So I wanted to demonize those little red lights, by making everyone think of Kim Jong Il whenever they see one.”
A TV set that’s switched on for 3 hours a day and in standby mode for the remaining 21 hours uses about 40% of its energy on standby.
See for yourself just how much energy you’re using/wasting with an electricity monitor - perfect for inspiring you to turn those tellies off standby.
