Low-impact materials: choose non-toxic, sustainably produced or recycled materials which require little energy to process

PowerPoint Presentation:

Design can be a powerful tool even in the most unglamorous areas of industrial sectors. For more than 30 years, Caterpillar has used clever design to remanufacture and reuse components from its enormous machines. This extends to all 6,000 components, which they collect and refurbish in 30 locations, saving 140 million lbs. of materials per year. They then sell refurbished and remanufactured products alongside new ones at reduced prices, having passed the same stringent safety and reliability tests.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Energy efficiency: use manufacturing processes and produce products which require less energy

Created by ex-iPod designers, NEST is a learning thermostat for the 21st Century. A million miles from the drab mushroom-coloured box sitting apologetically on your wall, it’s smart, beautiful and simple. It learns your behaviour and adjusts your household temperature settings to your usage patterns

PowerPoint Presentation:

Up to 95% of the substance in household cleaning products is water, and disposing of the packaging when the bottle is empty is wasteful. This design from Replenish offers a concentrated recharging cartridge screwed into the bottom, which when inverted fills a chamber with sufficient liquid that can then be topped up with tap water. It’s an all-round winner saving waste and materials, along with the transport emissions from shipping water.

PowerPoint Presentation:
