Description You’ve probably heard of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” but when designing a product, we’ve found the “6 Rs” to be helpful. Use these questions to develop more sustainable products. Keep the main themes of sustainable design in mind: think about the product's life cycle, maximize resource efficiency, and eliminate or minimize hazards and pollution.
NOTES Size: 11 x 17
