Earlier this week we published a list of our go-to renovation resources. We'll keep adding to that list (we hope you will, too!) — bookmarking sites, showcasing products we love and sharing objects we lust after with you, our readers. 1000 EcoDesigns And Where To Find Them is one book we'd like to add to our list.
How many times have you spotted a product you loved and been unable to source it? Or perhaps you wondered where it fell on the green scale? Was it sustainable? Recycled? Locally sourced? Low waste manufactured?
If you're like us, you raised your hand in answer to these questions. Rebecca Proctor has the answers for you. In the book she spotlights a plethora of products that are not only good-looking but good for the plant as well. But it doesn't stop there. It also guides readers through the complex issues involved in creating and choosing eco-friendly designs for the home. A series of icons show each product's 'green' credentials, highlighting the use of recycled, sustainable and locally-sourced materials as well as non-toxic, low-energy and low-waste manufacturing processes, so that readers can see at a glance the individual characteristics of each design and become educated consumers.
