Good Habit / Bad Habit

Role: Design, Illustration, Risograph, Book binding
This project is a personal exploration of my daily choices and their impact on the environment.

The project is divided into two parts: "Bad Habit" and "Good Habit." Both books are printed on 11" x 17" recycled newsprint paper and are coptic bound, featuring original photography and illustrations.

The first book, "Bad Habit," contains a 7-day journal of every item I disposed of during that week. It also includes facts regarding the materials used, such as plastic, aluminum, and food waste, and their harmful impacts on the environment.

The second book, "Good Habit," consists of a personal journal in which I document my journey to living a waste-free week. Divided into three simple steps: Refuse, Reuse, and Rot (compost), this book provides facts and tips on how to adopt a minimal-waste lifestyle and explains why it is necessary to start taking action in our day-to-day lives. I also chose to print "Good Habit" using Risograph, as I learned in my research that Risograph printers are an eco-friendly printing choice..
