Book Discussion: Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

August 10, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

(North Point Press, 2002)

Author: Michael Braungart and William McDonough

“According to some accounts more than 90% of materials extracted to make durable goods in the US become waste almost immediately”* We have been designing our products for cradle to a premature grave. What if we designed more like nature, where the result of design is a resource for its next use? Why must design hurt the natural world?

McDonough and Braungart examine how we got to where we are and new approaches to designing without “waste.” Join us for a discussion of their design approach and what it can offer us in our on-going search for a more sustainable future.

Join us for an eye-opening discussion of this provocative and prescient classic. All are welcome! (even if you haven’t read the book)

Book is available from Firefly in Kutztown, your intrepid local book-store, or on-line
