Clarice Freire is a writer from Recife, the capital of Pernambuco state in northeast Brazil. In 2014, Freire published her first book Pó de Lua when she was 24 years-old. Her book can be found in bookstores throughout Brazil and has sold more than 70,000 copies. Veja magazine (equivalent to Time magazine) listed her book in their best seller list for several weeks.
Freire writes and draws her poetry, she uses illustrations as words to complete the text. Her writing is visual poetry with more than shapes: the drawing is essential for the context. Her poems cleverly follow the rhythm typical of internet speed reading to elicit profound thoughts and subtle humor.
The author became known through her Instagram and Facebook page. Pó de Lua’s Facebook page is followed by 1.5 million fans from all ages and regions of Brazil, as well as in Portugal. Freire published her second book “Pó de Lua nas Noites em Claro” at the end of 2016 by the well-respected publishing house Intrínseca.

O estudo e a prática do Consumo Consciente e a necessidade do mercado sempre ávido por novidades, levaram a artista plástica e artesã Thiana Santos a refletir sobre a responsabilidade de cada um de nós a respeito do descarte de tudo que consumimos. A partir desta reflexão e sabendo que a garrafa plástica é um componente do lixo que leva mais de 100 anos para se decompor, ela iniciou um trabalho de pesquisa para desenvolver técnicas e ferramentas para trabalhar o pet de forma inovadora: "procuro desenvolver um trabalho, em busca de um novo olhar, aliando as questões ambientais e sociais ao desenvolvimento de produtos sustentáveis". O resultado desta preocupação é a linha de produtos com design sustentável, inspirada nos resíduos do consumismo contemporâneo e baseada no tripé da sustentabilidade: Economicamente viável; Socialmente justo; e Ambientalmente correto. Um bom exemplo de seu trabalho foi a própria decoração do palco do TEDx Recife 2014.
