Green Ads

Pictures speak louder than words and since the invention of the press and media technology, most messages find their longest lives when transmitted through pictures. This has led to the development of advertising. Today, when the message of preservation of nature has gained peak importance, it is no wonder that organizations have chosen the print and online media to drum their eco-messages into the minds of the masses. Most often, these advertisements are loud, expressive and intriguing so as to have a stable effect on peoples’ minds. Below are listed ten of the most wonderfully displayed messages.
