The challenge was

Spread environmental awareness.

It’s in your nature to make impactful art.

None of us would exist without the environment. It provides humans and all other species on this planet with the natural resources we need for survival, good health, and quality of life. It’s our collective duty to protect the environment so it may continue providing for future generations to come. As Earth Day approaches, let’s spread a message of environmentalism with the next Design Challenge.

What are some of the actions you believe are essential to protecting the environment? Minimizing pollution? Shrinking our carbon footprint? Defending wildlife habitats? Consider focusing your new design on an environmental issue that is important to you. Or, you can make a new design inspired by the things you love about nature, whether it’s hiking through the mountains or spotting creatures out in the wilderness. Nature also produces so many hues and tones you can choose to incorporate into your color palette.

Your new design will help spread awareness for the environment, but it can make an even bigger impact. With Threadless Causes, you can donate a portion of your earnings from the sale of your new design to environmental organizations doing critical work around the world. For our recently launched Environment Cause, Threadless will be matching collective donations up to $100,000! If you’re interested in joining our fundraising efforts, refer to our Help Page to learn how Causes works.

Let’s give back to nature with the next Design Challenge!
