The Growth Plates incorporate touches of nature indoors to raise eco-friendly awareness in a more direct, creative and ultimately effective manner. This simple concept nevertheless goes a far way in terms of making a strong impact.

Designed by Andrew Harmon, the Growth Plates cover outlets and light switches to remind people to not take technology and electricity for granted. What I appreciate most about these designs is that they interact with household staples that we often don't even acknowledge because they have become so ingrained in our daily routine.

The shock of seeing a grassy surface on these Growth Plates will really make us think twice before turning on a light or even leaving it on when not in that particular room.
