The text Shut Down Line Five over top of clouds

What is line 5? Why is it a threat? Two oil and gas pipelines, collectively known as Line 5, run under the straits of Mackinac - the waterway connecting Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. This 64 year old pipeline, owned by Enbridge, was projected to last 50 years. Current environmental laws would not permit it to be constructed today due to the risk posed to the Great Lakes. Yet every day, nearly 23 million gallons of oil flow through the 5 miles of pipeline just west of the Mackinac Bridge.

Members of the KCAD student chapters of AIGA, the professional association for design, and the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) use sustainable materials to help push this project forward with a series of promotional items that spread the message to Shut Down Line 5.
