  • What is Green?


    Green design is an attitude, a movement, a challenge, a necessity, and an inspiration. It is the zeitgeist of our time, and it is the duty of designers to help carry the torch.

    Green design is the production, development, implementation, and sustainability of designs that at least do little damage to our planet, and at best give something back to it.

    Green design is the use of thoroughly researched, environmentally painless, and globally recognized materials and processes. Being green is not as simple as being organic, because after too long, anything can be "organic".

    Green design is about the awareness and knowledge of all stages of the process and all factors that one's design affects, with the ultimate goal being a limited to invisible mark on the planet, and a lasting positive change in the world.
