The Greengaged event at the Design Council ran from the 15-23 September, 2008. It was a packed programme of movers and shakers in the sustainable design circles.

We attended the Friday event ‘Walk it, Talk it’ led by Three Trees Don’t Make a Forest, which was an inspiring mix of knowledge-sharing and networking. The workshop focussed on design decisions and environmental considerations for print processes and sustainable papers. In amongst a huge amount of information, the speakers praised the use of folded formats – no staples, glue, stitching or threads to get in the way of the recycling process.
