Ryman Eco — The world’s most beautiful sustainable font

In 2014, a 14-year-old from Pittsburgh, Suvir Mirchandani wrote to the U.S. federal government saying that by simply changing its fonts to narrower, lighter ones, it could as much as $394 annually while also reducing its impact on the environment due to lower ink production and disposal volumes.

Shortly thereafter, Ryman Eco was born, developed by ad agency Grey London and stationery brand Ryman.

The font, by making the words and numbers we print lighter, uses 33 percent less ink than standard fonts like Times New Roman, Verdana and Arial. This leads to considerable saving in plastic and oil used in the manufacture of ink cartridges and, thereby, to much less waste. It is the ideal typeface for people and organisations who print a lot to reduce their impact on the environment.
