Water Bottles

A TOTO HET toilet can save up to 24,655 gallons of water per year, but how do you show that visually so that you can truly grasp what a number like that means?

That’s the question that SKAGGS faced for their latest photo shoot, and the answer involved “2 months of planning, 1 trip from El Paso to Dallas and back, 1,000 – 5 gallon water bottles, 3 trucks, 2 tractors, 1 buggy and a whole lot of man (and woman) power”.

Armed America: Portraits of American Gun Owners in Their Homes “isn’t a book about guns. It’s a book about people”.

Kyle Cassidy traveled 15,000 miles over the course of two years to ask those featured just one question: Why do you own a gun?”

The goal was to humanize an issue as polarizing as gun ownership and gun control, and according to the reviews, Kyle succeeded.

…Your tank isn’t always empty?

Tank On Empty

When your gas light comes on, how far can you go before it’s time to push?

Tank on Empty wants to help you answer that question, and it does so by polling other drivers to see how many miles they’ve gone on E.

By using this information, TOE hopes to create a database of how far each car can go before it’s time to fill up.
