The sustainability conversation has evolved radically since I started the Designers Accord two and a half years ago. At that time, major magazines like Time and Vanity Fair were declaring "eco-wars," reveling in "eco-nakedness," and celebrating Indiana Jones-Athena hybrid "eco-pin-ups."
What kind of cardboard is best for compostable packaging? What can we do to encourage consumers to recycle? What kind of testing does the FDA do for materials toxicity? How can I convince my clients that sustainable design can save them money? What does sustainability really mean, anyway? If these are the kinds of questions you're asking more and more, the new Designers Accord forum is where you need to be to find the answers to all your hot sustainable design questions.
