Your Tote Counts by Chelsea College of Art

Clerkenwell Design Week Starts Today! Here’s Why You Can’t Miss It! 2According to the UK Environment Agency (UKEA), the ecological footprint of a cotton tote bag is 327 times worse than a regular plastic bag. Therefore, Your Tote Counts has the main goal to raise awareness regarding the ecological footprint, more specifically regarding the issue of a surplus of tote bags replacing unsustainable plastic bags. Students from Chelsea College of Art have set up an installation with Print Club London to encourage the reuse of old totes.

Recycled totes will be upcycled live at the festival, with five designs selected from Chelsea College of Art graphic design students.

Judges included: Max Fraser – CDW content editor, James McLachlam editor of Icon magazine, Danielle Pender editor of Riposte magazine, Joe Joiner creative director & designer, and David Barnett Chelsea Collage of Art course leader, BA Graphic Design Communication.
