Description / Synopsis

We have a piece of fiery propaganda created by a mystery non-shopper, who has re-used a handful of distinctive ampersands from the high street’s most iconic stores to craft a subversive anti-consumption message. “We have an insatiable desire to shop till we drop,” says Mystery Non-shopper. “If we don’t change our ways we will be shopping till the world stops.”


The more money we spend on new handbags, man bags and glad rags, the more we contribute to the rapid depletion of global resources.


Do The Green Thing aims to inspire as many people as possible to live in a less selfish, less consumptive, more imaginative and more sustainable way. Our product is a feed of beautiful, subversive and delightful inspiration made by great creative talent from around the world.


In the seven years since we launched Do The Green Thing, our posters, films, podcasts and products have reached over 21m people in 209 countries/territories around the world. Research conducted by Hall & Partners tells us that we’ve inspired our subscribers to save 2.5 times more CO2 than they otherwise would have.
