Magnus Kallas, from London, England, submitted the design that was chosen from hundreds of entries from throughout the world. He’s a graphic designer, amateur photographer and a fan of urban composting. In his youth he helped his grandparents on their farm before becoming a full-time city dweller. Now located in east London, he re-discovered composting when he started a little window garden of onions, basil and tomato plants and started mixing the soil with leftovers like eggshells, leaves, and peels from fruits and vegetables.
Here’s what Magnus has to say about why he entered the contest: “Doing the artwork for the poster I was thinking about the action that happens on top, around and below the ground with good soil. While a blossoming and seeding onion might be a headache for some farmers, I see it in a more positive way – good soil and happy plants are part of a healthy ecosystem. Hence the bee is happy too. Sustainability is an important part of all our lives.”
