    Book Report - Cradle to Cradle

    Book Report - Cradle to Cradle

    Today Jason will be giving us a book report on his latest sustainability read: Cradle to Cradle by Michael Braungart and William McDonough. This is a book from 2022 that rethinks how we create products. Instead of designing things for cradle to grave, they should be designed for cradle to cradle. Even though this book is older, it still has a lot of useful insights. If you are interested in reading this book for yourself, check it out at your local library.
