Ecotonoha - interactive ecology project - add a leaf, plant a tree
July 23, 2003 9:17 AM   Subscribe

Ecotonoha - the word tree. Add a signature leaf to this interactive tree...between now and Christmas, for every 100 leaves added, NEC will plant a tree on Kangaroo Island as part of their Australian afforestation program. The tree is rebuilt each day - so far, 6,000+ participants are responsible for 60 new trees. An intriguing collaborative flash project designed by Yugo Nakamura.

I loved that, madamj! Took me forever to figure out how to add a leaf (duh). Beautiful.

Hi. We've found a way to monitor paper usage in a highly technical and improbable way. Print out this message and give it to 10 peoplebecause for every 10,000 people who get a copy of this message, a tree will be cut down....

Just added another Eucalyptus globulous leaf to the tree. Took me some time to figure it out too. Just keep clicking on the tree.

Yeah, I finally got a leaf. Very nifty, a bunch of countries represented.

Oh, cool. It's a bit hard to figure out how to add a leaf, but now that I've got the hang of it, I'll try to add one every day. What an interesting Flash! ^__^
