More about the book:

Product Design & Sustainability is a comprehensive and accessible text that delves into the broad, complex and fascinating causes of our un-sustainability as they relate to products and consumption and guides designers affirmatively through the most appropriate strategies and creative opportunities for transforming our products and services into tools for sustainable one-planet living.
