Green Design colorfully documents the rising trend to create and market new and innovative products that help consumers downsize and upgrade their lives. Through a carefully chosen selection of green toys, objects, fabrics, paper and alternative energy sources, the photographs and articles in Green Design illustrate what happens when green-minded lifestyles meet well-designed, high quality products. Many of the examples in this book show how successful business plans can flourish when ecological and social responsibility are core considerations.
With articles by writers who have collectively contributed to Wired, Mother Jones, NPR’s All Things Considered, Entertainment Chronicle, I.D., dwell and Photo District News, Green Design is suited for designers implementing aspects of green design and consumers who want to be informed about the products they buy.
