Happy Earth Day! smallerWe’re not only excited for Earth Day, but also to release version 3.1 of the Vision Ecobrick Guide– in both English and Indonesian!

A big thanks to the team of strangers who joined together to translate the VEB Guide to Indonesian on our wiki!  Incredibly, this amazing organic translation unfolded over only a few weeks.  Our Indonesian release is still a Beta version– we are still missing a few pages and revisions, but… we’ve got something solid to start with!  Check it out here.  We will be revising it this week as we get feedback from our first schools– so hold off if you are planning to make lots of copies.

Cover Eng 31This new Engligh release smooths over typos, pagination issues, but best of all, includes powerful new illustrations by Jo Stodgel.  Jo, an avid Ecobricker and core member of the Ecobrick International Alliance, has vividly illustrated important concepts such as: cradle-to-cradle thinking, photodegradation, and the perils of burning plastic.  Also, included are fresh new character illustrations by Manila cartoonist El Tiburon Grande.

Check out Jo’s and Abe’s work and more in the new Vision Ecobrick Guide Version 3.1!
