Creative environmental charity Do The Green Thing has announced it is running 23 custom-designed posters, one each day in March in the build-up to WWF Earth Hour on 23 March.

Do The Green Thing WWF Earth Hour poster: Spokesperson

On that date the environmental campaigners are encouraging people to switch their lights off from 20:30 in support of future sustainability, with The Drum running each poster on the morning of its release.

Spokesperson was created by bike-mad creative agency Harriman Steel, in order to inspire people to use more pedal power and less petrol power.

“We all cycle at HarrimanSteel. For us it’s about fitness, exploration, freedom and self-expression. It’s not just about getting from A to B. A bike is not only a mode of transportation, but an extension of one’s personality (in the same way a dog looks like its owner). ‘Spokespeople’ is a tongue in cheek expression of this thought and the simple idea that two wheels are better than four. Better for you. Better for the environment. Better for all.”
