As a young enthusiastic student designer, I often find myself looking for cradle to cradle solutions to design.
Recently I have faced the realities of finding a job soon and am beginning to learn the sad truth behind most of the jobs available in my area.
At the end of the day, everyone has a boss with deadlines and cost restraints. In addition to that, we all have a mortgage to pay. This poses the ever-so present question:
Is Capitalism, as a political ideology, sustainable for society and the environment? If so, how can designers create a system that will work for all of members of society, including the number-crunching corporations, and those lower on the socio-ecomomic level?
...and lastly, how can designers infultrate the main-streams blatent disreguard for green solutions?
