Brazil 2016 - Conscious Consumption of Water and Electricity

ISSUE DATE: 15 June 2016
STAMP DESIGN: Ariadne / Meik

Stamps designed to help people understand and rationalize the consumption of water and electricity and help to learn conscious consumption of resources. 

The first stamp shows a picture of a tap, as a symbol of water consumption. An arrow indicates the movement that must be done to close it. Other designs made with ballpoint pen, represent water consumption reduction tips: rainwater utilization, sweep the courtyard rather than wash it, brush your teeth with the tap closed, lather up with enclosed shower, fix leaks , washing vehicles and watering plants without using hose. 

The second stamp shows a light bulb as a symbol of electricity consumption and the sun as a symbol of alternative light and energy source. Other drawings suggest important tips: turn off the lights in empty rooms, using more economical appliances, avoiding stand by mode.

As obvious as it looks these kind of messages are supposed to be repeated over and over again.
