The Cradle to Cradle Design Framework for Interior Designers

Event date

Event description

Learn about the Cradle to Cradle® Design Framework and how implementing its principles will take your practice beyond sustainable interior design.

Cradle to Cradle® is the product design concept that takes into consideration 5 specific criteria for effective ecological, economic and equitable impacts in manufacture, use and post-use behaviours. Products are created through intelligent, responsible production methodology, operations are optimized for value retention and the concept of waste is all but eliminated.  

Join Cradle to Cradle® advocate Brendon Rowen as he discusses how he supports companies in the production and use of high quality, fully assessed, intelligently designed products, using the Cradle to Cradle® design framework. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Circular Economy movement and its activities have the potential to evolve our current wasteful, sometimes thoughtless linear model to a more resource abundant, economically flourishing and ecologically responsible model. Already we are seeing outstanding innovative invention and positive development that is changing our global vision for the better.

In this 90-minute webinar, Brendon will cover the following

  • A brief overview of the Cradle to Cradle® Design origins and principles
  • Why Cradle to Cradle® certification is important for interior design materials.
  • Impact of Cradle to Cradle Certified® materials on Interior Design Business in the UK.
  • How Cradle to Cradle® principles and Circular Economy initiatives are creating new business models.
  • Cradle to Cradle Certified® Materials Resources in the UK.
  • Q & A Session
