BYOB by Rebecca Penmore
On a hot summer’s day when hydration was the name of the game, Pentagram designer Rebecca Penmore noticed that our bottles of tap water are much more than liquid containers - they are an extension of our personality.
"The aim of my poster is to encourage people to carry their own bottle of tap water and avoid countlessly re-buying mineral water. I have used the well known acronym BYOB as a simple and straightforward way to communicate this message," says Rebecca. "Bringing your own bottle is not only an easy way to reduce your global footprint, but it can be a great form of self expression!"
Our never-ending thirst for Evian has left billions of plastic bottles bobbing around in the ocean or gathered in vast flotillas such as The Pacific Trash Vortex. We’ve even created a new microbial ecosystem that scientists have dubbed the ‘plastisphere’. It’s simply got to stop.
We’re selling this poster printed on FSC paper with sustainable ink for £12 plus VAT, postage and packing with all proceeds going back to the Do The Green Thing charity. You can buy it here.
