While I know that all those readers who’ve gotten through architecture school know all about Bill McDonough + Michael Braungart and their book Cradle to Cradle, I still had to plug the book for everyone else interested in sustainability + green design/living.

In Cradle to Cradle, McDonough and Braungart argue that the conflict between industry and the environment is not an indictment of commerce but an outgrowth of purely opportunistic design. The design of products and manufacturing systems growing out of the Industrial Revolution reflected the spirit of the day-and yielded a host of unintended yet tragic consequences.
