Summary
"This book provides an insight into the hidden world of product design, the side often hidden from designers themselves, and certainly from consumers. By establishing a key based on five basic principals for identifying the unsustainable qualities in a product, it enables designers and manufacturers to make decisions affecting a product's materials, production and waste. Unsustainable factors can be designed out; it's just a matter of asking the right questions." "The book also contains many examples of products that have made a move towards sustainability including the Ameco chair, the Patagonia fleece, the VW Lupo, the Mondaine Ecomatic watch, the radius toothbrush, Foxfibre socks, Trippen shoes, the IZ Zanussi washing machine, the Emeco Hudson chair and the Millenium II Spacepen."--BOOK JACKET
