I created these posters for the Embassy of Luxembourg, Washington, D.C.

For the European Union Beach Clean-up Campaign 2020.


Practice caring for the earth through package-free shopping,

reducing water consumption, composting, and keeping your neighborhood clean. Remember: think Globally and act Locally.


1. Package-free shopping: Bring your reusable bags when you shop. Reduce your plastic waste! REFUSE, REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Reduce your carbon footprint by shopping locally: support your local farmer's markets and small businesses.


2. Reduce your Water Consumption

-Install water-efficient toilets

-Turn off the faucet flow while brushing your teeth

-No need to pre-rinse dishes before putting them into the dishwasher

-Operate the dishwasher when fully loaded

-Plant native, drought-tolerant plant species to minimize the need for water

-Install cisterns to capture rainwater


3. Composting

Benefits:

-Compost enhances water retention in soils, reduces erosion and evaporation, and reduces the amount of watering.

-Compost reduces the need for chemical fertilizers and provides free organic nutrients, nitrogen, carbon, and micronutrients while increasing yields.

-Decontaminating polluted soils binds with toxins like lead and cadmium so plants will not absorb them.

-Improves soil quality in degraded lands and soils.

-Suppresses some plant diseases, such as clubroot in cabbage.

-Growing vegetables in rich compost can improve the products' nutritional value, improve people's overall health, and address food security.

Healthy soil, healthy plants, Healthy People

Compost is locally available; there is no need for manufacturing and transporting.

"The compost becomes food, and the food becomes compost."


Think Globally, and Act locally: Keep your neighbourhood clean.
