How Green is Your Green? Using Design for the Environment to Reduce Your Green Product/Service’s Environmental Impact
With today’s environmental problems growing ever bigger, it is encouraging to see a range of new green products and services enter the market. Easily taken in by marketing, we tend however to overlook aspects of a product or service that, behind their cool design features, point to an environmental footprint that may be no better or sometimes even worse than a ‘non-green’ alternative.
Design for the Environment – DFE – (aka green or eco design) is a method to minimize or eliminate the environmental impacts of a product or service over its entire lifecycle. We will look briefly at this approach, its central idea (life cycle thinking = environmental impact from material sourcing to energy use to disposal), and a few examples of products and services and how they stack up against each other in terms of green design.
