The Consumer Family

The Global Canopy Programme commissioned this poster-sized comic strip as part of it's partnership with the forest recreational company, Go Ape!

The Consumer Family caricatures the unsustainable 'day in a life' of a particularly environmentally oblivious family in Britain.

Through humour and satire, the objective is to draw attention to the daily habits of an average family buried in a consumer society. The idea is to highlight the need to urgently make some changes for a greener planet.
