Sustainability A to Z


I am starting my first side project! For the longest time I have been wanting to do something fun, creative, and environmentally conscious outside of my day job. What has stopped me in the past and still inhibits me, is the fact that this is outside of my comfort zone. I’m used to designing websites and marketing materials, not creating original graphics, illustrations or art.

It is always nerve-racking to put personal work out there for fear of judgment and/or failure, especially when you’re trying something new and not very good at it. I have finally decided I can no longer let the discouraging voices stop me and that I just have to do it, no matter how much it scares me. I probably will be terrible at first, but I can only get better if I practice.

My hopes for this project
This is not just about improving my skills, but it is also an opportunity to gain a better understanding of sustainability. In order for us to become more sustainable as a society, we need to know what that means and how it can be accomplished. I hope that by looking more closely at the factors that contribute to sustainability, we can find solutions for the challenges we face. Since there are an infinite number of topics we could cover, I am narrowing it down to the alphabet, choosing one topic for each letter and creating a graphic representation for each.

I have a list of possible subjects in mind, but am open to any suggestions. Leave me a comment below or contact me.

I’ll be documenting my progress along the way, so follow me on this blog, Facebook, Instagram, and #SustainabilityAtoZ for updates!

Lastly, I invite anyone to join me, whether you are a designer, artist, or have another medium in which you would like to explore sustainability. Tag your work with #SustainabilityAtoZ. If you’re like me and have been dreaming of trying something new, I encourage you to take the chance and give it a shot!

    [b]Keep Your Skin Moist and Youthful With Hyaluronic Acid! [/b]

    Hyaluronic Acid is a Safe and Natural Anti-Aging and Moisturizing Substance!

    Instead of trying odd artificial products with little to no science behind them, using Hyaluronic acid is certainly the better choice. It is a natural ingredient of human skin, which helps it look plumper and prevent wrinkles. Look Younger the Natural Way! Babies have a lot of Hyaluronic acid in their skin, making it so deliciously soft and smooth. By rubbing hyaluronic acid twice a day into your skin, you can regain some of that smoothness in time, giving you a younger look and healthier skin.

    It works on ALL skin types and of course it works just as well on men as it does on women! No matter if you have oily, dry or mixed skin; Hyaluronic acid will work just as deeply and thoroughly. Take Control of Your Skin’s Health! Our skin needs a lot of care to retain its youthful elasticity and looks. As we age, our skin loses a lot of its Hyaluronic acid and collagen.

    This causes wrinkles to appear, especially after the age of 40. By replenishing some of that Hyaluronic acid, we can delay aging and retain youthful looks for a lot longer.
