About the Project

Ecosketchbook has been created both as an educational tool and a sketchbook, with half of the pages containing sustainable design advice, strategies and resources, and the other half providing thought-provoking questions and ample space on which to draw and explore these concepts. The purpose of Ecosketchbook is to increase awareness about the environmental issues connected with a project and to provide insights and strategies for designing a more sustainable world.

As a consumer, this book will increase your awareness about the impacts that lifestyle choices have on the environment. As a designer, this book will connect these impacts to the design process and show how thoughtful design practices and eco-design strategies can reduce impacts, save money, and even increase product desirability.

Topics covered in the book:

  • Ecological Footprint
  • Zero Waste
  • Cradle to Cradle
  • Biomimicry
  • Life Cycle Assessment
  • Sustainable Design Strategies
  • Communicating Sustainability
