I thought this was really nifty:
background stories that go in food labels to show you exactly what is involved with making what you are about to buy/eat.
So often, it’s hidden what the real costs of the food you buy are. We don’t see the chocolate bar’s development, we just see it as an object worth 15 minutes of yum. The group over at SlowLab is promoting “Slow Design” to help educate people and make them think about the things they buy as more than just a thing, to think of the objects as a process, and to show their true cost in the process. What a great idea!
