R3 is a creative think tank, joined by educators and graphic designers. Our purpose is to promote sustainable design by examining product lifecycles. The result is this poster campaign to build awareness around our consumption and waste disposal habits. The title "The End" questions what is the beginning and end of a product lifecycle.
