Description / Synopsis

The last poster in Hiromi Suzuki’s anti-meat series puts the carbon cost of roast beef into perspective. “Japan is the world biggest buyer of beef but isn’t a top player when it comes to producing beef. Imported beef comes from all over the world to feed steak-hungry consumers in Japan, yet the small price they are paying doesn’t match the large cost to the environment.”


We are slow-cooking, spit-roasting and char-grilling like the world is about to end. If we are all a little more careful about our meat consumption, we won’t wreck the ozone layer and the world won’t end any time soon.


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.
