Amazing Stop Motion Animation of Tissue Animals

tissue animals by nepia

Tissue Animals is a stop motion animation by Japanese tissue manufacturer Nepia. The idea was to show that the manufacturer is mindful of the environment and dedicated to the cause of sustainable forests, conserving the ecosystem, and generating employment. A great way for a tissue manufacturer to show their concern for their environment, considering that their business relies on cutting down trees for the product is to show frolicking animals and ecosystems. And perhaps hope that the message gets across through the video.
