Buy Nothing Day Project - Here are some quick illustrations of vegetables to go on my packaging. The aim of my packaging is to influence others to shop less and ‘grow your own’ fruit and vegetables. Although Buy Nothing Day is about influencing an audience to step away from their luxury’s, my concept relates to the use of every day needs, and how you can shop less by growing your own. The idea is based around the seed of civilisation, and the idea that one piece of fruit or vegetable can grow many more.
“The civilisation process of the human race began about 10,000 years ago on the day someone recognised and collected seeds from the wild and then purposefully sowed them in order to grow some of their own food. Previously food had been gathered from the wild and humans had mostly been at least semi-nomadic.”
