Think like Dutch co Spranq which has designed a brand new typeface called Ecofont that uses 20 percent less ink by simply removing as much of each letter as possible, while still leaving it readable. Basically, they got rid of the line that connects the dots to create the characters!
Most printer cartridges end up in landfills. The more ink we use, the more garbage we create – it all adds up. And it’s free to download.
You can see how the Ecofont is created by omitting parts of the letter. At the shown size, this obviously is not very nice, but at a regular font size it is actually very usable. Naturally, the results vary depending on your software and the quality of your screen. The Ecofonts works best for OpenOffice, AppleWorks and MS Office 2007. Printing with a laser printer will give the best printing results.
