    Climateshame is growing more and more. One of our most important objectives are car drivers. The CO2-emission percentage of the traffic worldwide is currently over 20% and the solutions on political levels are tedious. It starts with the individual decision to abandon the car in daily life. We used existing posters on the Autobahn to spread the message and also the tender spot of every car driver: petrol stations.

  • Supermarkets

    Many products, especially fruits, travel long distances despite there are regional alternatives. We point out the products with a bad CO2-balance.

  • Take action!

    Environment, Communication Design


    We've overcome various difficulties and realized our first actions to educate the public about global warming.

    Shop Windows

    Even in a small town like Weimar many shopkeepers illuminate their windows to present their products still late at night. Consumption never seems to take a break. It's questionable if the illuminated presentation really pays for the waste of energy. So we did what had to be done and masked the illuminated windows.

    greetings from the climate front.
