Re-nourish is an online tool advocating awareness & action for sustainable systems thinking in the communication design community. We are, at the moment, just two people who want to make things better. We believe that 'good design' values people, the environment, and improves lives. Instead design is currently on an unsustainable path centered on overconsumption, waste, and ignoring the natural systems around us. Re-nourish aims to help the practicing communication designer, educator and student make positive greener and pragmatic design decisions. Our tools and resources are created to be straightforward and implementable now. Our case studies, articles and blog provide inspiration and knowledge to help designers implement more sustainable strategies.
After all, to 'renourish' means to foster, cherish, and strengthen positive growth. Those are our goals and we need help making sure it happens. This will take a committed community. (You.) Join us.
Re-nourish is currently a self-funded project that believes in delivering 'free' awareness to incite change. We do not accept financial support from advertisers or other commercial interests tied to the design industry. This allows us to remain unbiased to provide information based on our own research, sound environmental science, and industry best practices.
Although we try, we don't promise to have all the answers. Technology and best practices are changing every day, so we're constantly updating our site.
