    If you like eco-friendly design, architecture, and reading while taking long bubble baths, then this book is for you. In William McDonough and Michael Braungart's manifesto for the new industrial revolution, where objects are designed with their full life-cycles, from raw materials, to their re-incarnation into another product. To prove their point, they've redesigned the book itself, printed on a synthetic paper, on the grounds that paper can only be recycled (downcycled) to a lesser product. First advantage of their plastic book, you can get it wet!

    Pretty much the bible on sustainable design. Makes so much sense that it's scary.

    A fabulous concept book about how all products designed by humans in the world should be either 100% biodegradable or 100% recyclable.

    There is a wave of great books coming out focused on sustainability but Cradle to Cradle is one I highly encourage everyone to read. It is a brilliant call to arms to change the way the industrial system operates. They lay out a practical method that will increase both prosperity and sustainability. Great ideas without a powerful infrastructure often die on the vine. Using this roadmap, we would all benefit.

    This is the most important book I've ever read. Cradle to Cradle is a philosophy that calls for humanity to start building and living in a way that is both modern and comfortable and green and ecological. There is no waste in nature, why is there in the way we do things? We should be looking to mimic nature's processes in how we build and do everything. I don't want to live in a cave and this book lays out the future for how we can all do that.
