It Ain't Easy....

Although we may mock absurd attempts at Greenwashing, trying to live more lightly on the Earth is something to be desired--but it's not a simple matter--is it better to keep driving that old, less efficient car , keeping it out of the junk stream, or buy a new, energy efficient car? Only one of many decisions to be made daily.

Here's a really interesting resource-- developed to help product designers determine which is the best way to go green. Keep following links--there's a wealth of info here.


Unfortunately, true environmental performance is rarely so simple. Products and the processes used to manufacture them consume energy, utilize non-renewable and renewable materials, and generate emissions. In creating designs, product designers are continually forced to make decisions that involve trade-offs between multiple environmental impacts.
