HEY PARAJITO by 1240 Design

Pajarito is a plush toy intended to raise awareness in Pilsen and
surrounding neighborhoods about air quality and pollution from
nearby powerplants.

Shaped like an eagle and filled with activated carbon, it
carries a tag with more detailed information about the crisis
and serves as a tool for education as well as a locally
produced product. Local artists will be invited to customze
their own version of Pajarito. These artist editions will be
sold in local galleries, retailers, and online. Proceeds will
benefit the artist’s local charity of choice. The online site
also allows users to upload their own designs and photos
wich can then be printed.
