Trees Are Friends Not Paper by the-ruthless Trees Are Friends Not Paper by the-ruthless
EMIL-KRIGSKOM at NTNU (local university) are going to throw this on desktops campus-wide, apparently. The message is about reducing print-outs to save paper (and thus trees).

The cute tree vector illustration is by :icontommygum:

There may be changes later on.

Oh wait, it was going to be used as wallpapers! I thought it was going to be printed out and hanged up on walls.

...you feel that when used as a wallpaper, people should be able to read it from the other end of the room? (Interesting point, actually.)

Ehm... Utover det, hva tror du om den røde bakgrunnen (med noen andre antageligvis renere svarte og hvite elementer) som en mer "anonym", stilig wallpaper?

And I almost thought there for a second that you were in fact NOT a tree-hugger. Turns out I was..wrong. :D

But yeah, I get the message. Just don't try and figure out how many books (or trees) get burned when the publishers miscalculate and print too many of them..

I don't have the numbers in my head, but I believe they were in the thousands in certain cases..

I see that EMIL-KRIGSKOM has made a Facebook-group and whatnot today. Interesting. I'm probably gonna toss out versions for other resolutions... Plus I think I have to use that red background for something else (another wallpaper, possibly), since it's kinda sweet... IMO.

I know I've been (somewhat) responsible for a couple of magazine runs being trashed. One full run of the Tromsø Museum magazine Ottar, amongst others. That's one heavy Europall of paper going to waste!
However, I'd like to blame the designer at Museumet + the conversion from older Quark to slightly newer Quark. (Lesson; never use Quark, always check alignments, borders, text flow and whatnot after converting files between versions.)

Good, good! :D
I'm actually quite comfortable living with a dude that's studying advanced engineering related to saving the environment... :)

That's awesome. (I wish my family cared about saving the environment.. Oh well we don't choose our family. :P

Choosing families, noone would ever end up with the REALLY crappy ones, at least. :p

Oh, and you can still break out and find your own path, y'know.
