Summary
A manifesto for a radically different philosophy and practice of manufacture and environmentalism. "Reduce, reuse, recycle," urge environmentalists--in other words, do more with less in order to minimize damage. As this book argues, however, this approach perpetuates a one-way "cradle to grave" manufacturing model that casts off as much as 90 percent of the materials it uses as waste, much of it toxic. Why not challenge the notion that human industry must inevitably damage the natural world, they ask. Products might be designed so that, after their useful life, they provide nourishment for something new. Elaborating their principles from experience (re)designing everything from carpeting to corporate campuses, the authors make an exciting and viable case for change.--From publisher description
Summary
Challenges the concept that industry must inevitably damage the natural environment as it argues that products should be designed so that after their useful life they provide nourishment for something else--as biological nutrients that safely reenter the environment or as technical nutrients that circulate within closed-loop industrial circles. Puts forth principles to establish a manufacturing paradigm by which products will be designed for recyclability
