Nearly 40 years ago, a U.S. paper company
wanted an icon that would communicate its products’ recycled content
to consumers. The design competition held was won by Gary Anderson, a
young graphic designer from the University of Southern California. His
design entry was based on a shape with only one side and no end, known
as a Mobius strip Now Recognized and used universally as a symbol for
recycling. Look closely noting the similarity of the two symbols.
When most people think about recycling they think of just throwing there
trash like plastic bottles and glass into blue bins with the recycling
symbol on it. But it’s not it’s much more then just that.
Recycling by definition is a design principal, law of nature, source of
creativity and a source of prosperity.
