To promote Earth Hour at the end of March, charities WWF-UK and Do The Green Thing have teamed up with Pentagram and ask a series of creatives to design a poster to promote sustainable living.

And concluding the campaign will be a design by 22-year-old Rebecca Charlton from Bolton, who won a public vote in the Earth Hour Young Creatives student competition.

Charlton’s work will feature on poster sites across the UK, and work by two runners-up – Jamie Eke and Matthew Elliot – will also feature.

Rachel Bloodsworth, head of public engagement at WWF-UK, says, ‘[This] is a brilliant way of creatively showing how we can all live a more sustainable lifestyle. The quality of designs from the student competition and the well-known creatives have blown us away.’
