The Designer's Roadmap to Sustainability

The Designer's Roadmap to Sustainability is not just a guide, it's an essential reference that empowers designers to research and make informed choices about materials, manufacturing processes, and product lifecycles. By choosing durable products with minimal maintenance and considering the full lifecycle of materials, designers can ensure their creations are both beautiful and sustainable. Our guide emphasizes energy efficiency, water usage, waste management, social equity for labor, and the importance of third-party certifications such as FSC, GreenGuard, and Oeko-Tex. Join us in this journey towards sustainability, where every choice contributes to a healthier planet and a more sustainable future for all.
