Garlic grows perfectly packaged. So it was especially galling to the graphic design students in Chris North's five-week "Waste Not" seminar at Portland State University when a fellow student found peeled garlic at the grocery store sold in individually wrapped cellophane packets, all in a larger bag. But it helped spur a branding project by three students called Think. "Less". where they envisioned a system whereby customers would be rewarded with points for purchases that generate less waste. Those students will present their sustainable solution at the Shift 5 salon "What does sustainable design mean to you?" on Thursday in Portland sponsored by the local chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design.
