4. Good Habit / Bad Habit — 2018
This project is a personal exploration of my daily choices and how they affect 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 coptic bound, including 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 contains 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 decide to go 7 days waste free. Divided into 3 simple steps: Refuse, Reuse, and Rot (compost), this book contains facts and tips on how to live a minimal waste lifestyle & reasons why it is necessary to start taking action in our day-to-day lives. I also decided to print “Good Habit” using Risograph, as I learned in my research that Risograph printers are an ecofriendly printing choice.
