Lower East Side Ecology Center

The LES Ecology Center works toward a more sustainable New York City by providing community-based recycling and composting programs, developing local stewardship of green space, and increasing community awareness, involvement and youth development through environmental education programs.


DESIGN NEED
The Lower East Side Ecology Center (LESEC) needed to develop exhibition (phase 1) and marketing materials (phase 2) to promote its new E-Waste Warehouse, a permanent drop-off location for unwanted and broken electronics in New York City. The warehouse doesn’t handle the recycling of electronics, it’s a collection point for e-waste which is then transported to professional e-waste recyclers. Because LESEC is able to transport the e-waste in a tractor trailer there are fewer truck miles associated with the transportation.
