Saving the Planet With Century Gothic

Posted by Dave Blount at March 31, 2010 11:22 AM

Since ecomoonbattery is all about pious gestures, as opposed to constructive behavior, virtually anything can serve Gaia, so long as it is blessed by envirokooks — Century Gothic type, for example:

If you're looking for an easy way to make your contribution to saving the planet, then it could be as simple as switching your font to 'Century Gothic'. University of Wisconsin - Green Bay (UWGB) has rolled out the change this semester, saying it uses 30% less ink than its default font Arial when printed.
Century Gothic is apparently even more economical than a well-known "eco-font", and when printer ink can cost US$10,000 a gallon it's a great eco-friendly initiative that not only helps the planet but also saves money.
UWGB is keen to minimize use of its resources with the aim of being more environmentally conscious and has committed to a five year plan to "go green".

No doubt they'll be cutting tuition fees, what with all the money they're saving. Kidding, of course.

If changing fonts can save the planet because it uses less ink, what if universities were to stop relentlessly mailing brochures, pamphlets, catalogs, newsletters, and naked pleas for free money to everyone who ever attended a class? That would no doubt save the whole solar system.

Saving the planet one foolish gesture at a time.
