I'm not sure if you guys remember a comment that Eric Nay made during design thinking (which was about green design). He mentioned that the only way we can achieve that is by not designing at all.
So I went looking for Green Designs and i came across this: http://www.treehugger.com/design_architecture/?dcitc=th_nav_design
It's got green design written all over it. It's kind of neat, it tells you simple things to keep green, which is nice i suppose. Some of the products that they are selling are from recycled material.
It's just that, unless all products are created from recycled goods, we will always be harming it in some way. We can only design to harm the environment less which is kind of silly. No product is set to last forever, and at the rate we are consuming goods, we certainly don't want it to be. We see as much through all that we have learned about planned obsolescence.
So what do you guys think about this green design? Is it more than a contradiction?
