I really like the conceit of the EcoDice and that of its brethren the KindnessDice and the WellnessDice, which together form a concept called DiceForChange by the Dutch design studio Creative Heroes. The dice aren’t available in physical form, but the idea is the charming part. Dice are one of the oldest types of gaming equipment, having been thrown, in one form or another, for at least 5000 years. The EcoDice isn’t going to change the world, but it might make it a little better for a little longer.
‘God’s dice always have a lucky roll.’
‘I shall never believe that God plays dice with the world.’
‘God not only plays dice, He also sometimes throws the dice where they cannot be seen.’
