Urban Forest Totes On Sale Monday

03_UFP_BannerBag3.gif

More than a year ago, we first wrote about the Urban Forest Project, the tree-themed exhibition that hung in Times Square. Safely retrieved from their lightposts, each of the 185 banners has been converted into two totebags courtesy of Jack Spade, and will be on sale starting Monday for $120 each. As our Urban Forest informants tell us, they’re beautiful, sturdy and great for the beach.

If you can’t shell out the big bucks, printed-to-order t-shirts of each banner are still available for $22-25. Sales benefit Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships and the AIGA/NY Mentoring Program. Not surprisingly, the concept has taken root in other AIGA chapters: AIGA Portland, for example, is currently seeking designers for its show.
