Swimming Pool for Regional Environmental Awareness

Like it or not, we're bombarded with advertisements from companies encouraging us to purchase the latest and greatest products they have to offer each and everyday. Slick magazine ads and TV commercials feature great photography, memorable taglines, models and more to lead us into temptation.

"Swimming Pool" as it's entitled is a really cool ad where a city's skyline is completely immersed in water. The writing on the wall: "Don't let this be our future. Save our rain forest, stop global warming."

Global TeamWork

Actions speak louder than words.

Teamwork has some revolutionary values and ideals, but doesn’t everyone?  They like getting our hands dirty.

TeamWork is a company that uses old materials such as old rubber tires, canvases, and used boat sails to make really cool bags!  Their belief is that ‘green’ design is indulgent unless it’s also practical, so they've made bags that are extremely durable and functional.  Good ideas mixed with great design.
