In the picture you can see how the Ecofont is created by omitting parts of the letter. At the shown size, this obviously is not very nice, but at a regular font size it is actually very usable. Naturally, the results vary depending on your software and the quality of your screen. The Ecofonts works best for OpenOffice, AppleWorks and MS Office 2007. Printing with a laser printer will give the best printing results.
The Ecofont is based on the Vera Sans, an Open Source letter, and is available for both PC and MAC.
It’s hard to be against motherhood and apple pie, but
would you still use ecofont if you found out, for example, that your PC and printer had to work harder to render so many curves in the form of holes and thus ended up wasting more electricity?
