Green Design means different things to everyone and everything depending on its perspective:
To me the Green mind-set is the realization that a rebirth of humans relationship with earth is imperative! "Green Design" encourage us as creators of things to not only "plug" problems we have created via design/redesign, but begin to re-evaluate our negative habits as consumers and users of materials, creatively. In turn as the ball start rolling, the more environmentally conscious the consumer will become, "Green" will go back to being a color and our civilization will be healthier and more environmentally considerate, while remaining productive as a society. Its a whole lifestyle redesign and it starts with + action!
