Cradle to cradle : remaking the way we make things by William McDonough( Book )

40 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 2,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A manifesto for a radically different philosophy and practice of manufacture and environmentalism. "Reduce, reuse, recycle," urge environmentalists--in other words, do more with less in order to minimize damage. As this book argues, however, this approach perpetuates a one-way "cradle to grave" manufacturing model that casts off as much as 90 percent of the materials it uses as waste, much of it toxic. Why not challenge the notion that human industry must inevitably damage the natural world, they ask. Products might be designed so that, after their useful life, they provide nourishment for something new. Elaborating their principles from experience (re)designing everything from carpeting to corporate campuses, the authors make an exciting and viable case for change.--From publisher description

In this follow-up to Cradle to Cradle, the authors draw on the lessons gained from ten years of putting the Cradle to Cradle concept into practice with businesses, governments, and ordinary people and envision the next step in the solution to our ecological crisis: we don't just use or reuse resources with greater effectiveness, we actually improve the world as we live, create, and build

The upcycle : beyond sustainability - designing for abundance by William McDonough( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Upcycle is the eagerly awaited follow-up to Cradle to Cradle, the most consequential ecological manifesto of our time. Now, drawing on the lessons gained from ten years of putting the cradle-to-cradle concept into practice with businesses, governments, and ordinary people, William McDonough and Michael Braungart envision the next step in the solution to our ecological crisis: We don't just reuse resources with greater effectiveness, we actually improve them as we use them. For McDonough and Braungart, the questions of resource scarcity and sustainability are questions of design. And they are practical-minded visionaries: They envision beneficial designs of products, buildings, and business practices - and they show us these ideas being put to use around the world as everyday objects like chairs, cars, and factories are being reinvented not just to sustain life on the planet but to grow it. It is an eye-opening, inspiring tour of the next industrial revolution as it unfolds in front of us. The Upcycle is every bit as ambitious as such classics as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring - but its mission is very different. McDonough and Braungart want to turn on its head our very understanding of the human role on earth: We should not just protect the planet from ourselves but should redesign our activity to improve the planet. And that goal is well within our reach."--Publisher's description
Cradle to cradle : remaking the way we make things by William McDonough( Recording )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paper or plastic? Neither, say William McDonough and Michael Braungart. Why settle for the least harmful alternative when we could have something that is better--say, edible grocery bags! In Cradle to Cradle, the authors present a manifesto calling for a new industrial revolution, one that would render both traditional manufacturing and traditional environmentalism obsolete. Recycling, for instance, is actually "downcycling," creating hybrids of biological and technical "nutrients" which are then unrecoverable and unusable. The authors, an architect and a chemist, want to eliminate the concept of waste altogether, while preserving commerce and allowing for human nature. They offer several compelling examples of corporations that are not just doing less harm--they're actually doing some good for the environment and their neighborhoods, and making more money in the process. Cradle to Cradle is a refreshing change from the intractable environmental conflicts that dominate headlines. It's a handbook for 21st-century innovation and should be required reading for business hotshots and environmental activists. --Therese Littleton
Intelligente Verschwendung The Upcycle : Auf den Weg in eine neue Überflussgesellschaft by Michael Braungart( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aus den Verlagsangaben: " Im Fokus steht nicht mehr nur das kluge Design einzelner Produkte, beim "Upcycling" geht es um die Vervollkommnung unseres Lebensstils um gesundes Wohnen, freudvolles Arbeiten und die Errichtung zukunftsfähiger Städte. Ein zutiefst positiver Zukunftsentwurf, eine überzeugende Einladung, Teil der "Aufwärtsspirale des Lebens " zu werden."
Einfach intelligent produzieren : cradle to cradle: die Natur zeigt, wie wir die Dinge besser machen können by Michael Braungart( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in German and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Autos aus Autos? Schuhe als Düngemittel für unsere Balkonblumen? Zukünftig gibt es nur noch zwei Arten von Produkten: Verbrauchsgüter, die vollständig biologisch abgebaut werden können, und Gebrauchsgüter, die sich endlos recyclen lassen. Die Devise lautet: Nicht weniger müssen wir produzieren, sondern verschwenderisch und in technischen und biologischen Kreisläufen. Eine ökologisch-industrielle Revolution steht uns bevor, mit der Natur als Vorbild. Und was die beiden Fachleute in anschaulicher Weise darbieten, ist keineswegs nur graue Theorie, sondern das Ergebnis eigener praktischer Erfahrungen: Michael Braungart und William McDonough erproben seit Jahren mit Firmen wie Ford, Nike, Unilever und BP erfolgreich die Realisierbarkeit ihrer Ideen."--Herausgeber
Die nächste industrielle Revolution : die Cradle to Cradle-Community by Michael Braungart( Book )

Waste = food by Rob van Hattum( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Man is the only creature that produces landfills. Natural resources are being depleted on a rapid scale while production and consumption are rising in nations like China and India. Waste production worldwide is enormous and if we do not do anything, we will soon have turned our entire planet into one big messy landfill. But there is hope. "Cradle to cradle" manufacturing and building is a revolutionary concept advocated by German chemist Michael Braungart and the American designer-architect William McDonough. This theory argues that manufacturers' products, when discarded, should either be completely recyclable in the Technosphere or become biodegradable food for the Biosphere. While fundamentally changing the way we produce and build, these ideas are increasingly being embraced by major corporations and governments worldwide

Cradle to cradle créer et recycler à l'infini by William McDonough( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in French and Undetermined and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"O lecteur, dévore ce livre !" souhaitent en secret la plupart des auteurs, et ceux de l'ouvrage que vous tenez entre vos mains ne dérogent pas à la règle, à ceci près que pour eux, la formule ne s'entend pas uniquement au sens figuré ! Car au-delà du fait que Michael Braungart et William McDonough espèrent que cet essai sera lu d'un trait par un lecteur passionné par le sujet, ils espèrent tout autant qu'un jour, le plus tôt possible, ce livre, comme toute production humaine, pourra littéralement être mangé, ou tout du moins digéré, sous forme biologique ou technologique. En effet les deux auteurs de "Cradle to cradle", entendez du berceau au berceau - et non plus du berceau à la tombe ! - militent depuis plusieurs années pour une "éco-efficacité" qui ne mettrait plus la croissance économique et l'écologie dos-à-dos : plutôt que de chercher à réduire notre consommation, créons un modèle industriel basé sur une sorte de compostage appliqué à tous les objets, imitant ainsi l'équilibre des écosystèmes naturels. Loin des habituels discours catastrophistes sur l'avenir de notre planète, "Cradle to cradle" propose des solutions concrètes qui peuvent faire de nos déchets d'aujourd'hui nos ressources de demain.

L'upcycle : au-delà du développement durable, l'éco-conception au service de l'abondance by William McDonough( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Upcycle est la suite très attendue de Cradle To Cradle, le manifeste d'écologie sans doute le plus fondamental de notre époque. Aujourd'hui, convoquant les enseignements obtenus suite à quinze années de mise en pratique du concept C2C auprès de sociétés, gouvernements et citoyens ordinaires, William McDonough et Michael Braungart lancent un nouvel appel évocateur visant à repenser la société humaine. C'est un panorama inspirant et révélateur de notre futur écologique qu'ils déroulent devant nos yeux : au lieu de protéger la planète de l'impact humain, pourquoi ne pas intégrer l'amélioration de notre cadre environnemental dans la conception même de nos activités? Ainsi pourrions-nous avoir une empreinte écologique bénéfique et durable, et créer de l'abondance pour tous. Ce but est à notre portée. Beaucoup d'idées présentées inspireront dirigeants d'entreprise et entrepreneurs dans leurs réflexions sur la façon d'optimiser leurs procédures et conceptions. Cette lecture est également précieuse pour tout un chacun puisqu'elle nous apprend à avoir de plus grandes attentes vis-à-vis de l'industrie, de la société, et de nous-mêmes. [4e de couv.]
