7 steps and no footprint? (a green product's lifecyle)


A product that claims to have no impact on the environment is surely asking for a beat-down by leaf-clad skeptics, but we might be closer than we think. Martin C. Pedersen over at Metropolis has filtered a flurry of green goings-on into 7 steps that actually define without-a-trace sustainability.

Borrowing from the Okala Design Guide, we've organized our stories around the life cycle of green products. Since there is still no perfect product, think of these as seven pieces of a Platonic whole, a set of best practices, and a possible road map for a new model of twenty-first-century manufacturing.
