Bags on a Mission
Our first project is to reinvent the ubiquitous plastic takeout bag used in restaurants and food establishments because of its convenience and low cost. These disposable bags eventually make their way to our landfills, where they take one thousand years to break down, if at all, but not before depositing toxic chemicals into the earth.
Rising energy costs and an increasingly polluted planet demand that we commit to environmentally-friendly products and habits. This is why Commit to Green™ encourages legislators to incentivize businesses to transition from recycled plastic bags to compostable bags for consumer use.
While a lot is said and written about Millennials’, this younger generation is more aware of the big societal and environmental issues of our day. They are conscientious and eager to effect positive change through innovative channels and initiatives. Commit To Green™ has harnessed the power of this altruistic mindset and creative potential by partnering with talented Communication Design students from Pratt Institute’s Design Corps in order to produce engaging and original eco-friendly graphics that are instrumental to our mission. By contributing to our cause, students are placed at the crossroads of business, philanthropy and the classroom, which allows them to secure valuable real-world design experience for their future.
Design Corps consists of a group of Pratt’s most talented students from the Undergraduate Communication Design Department operating as a design firm under the direction of experienced, talented design faculty. Read more…
