To help LUNAR designers and engineers create more sustainable products, the LUNAR ElementsSM team researches and catalogs materials, processes and resources that will lessen the impact of products on our ecosystem. To facilitate these sessions, LUNAR ElementsSM created The Designers Field Guide to Sustainability, a first step in helping guide designers and engineers through the confusing world of sustainable design. Following through on our commitment as Designers Accord adopters, this guide is meant to be part of the growing public discourse on sustainability and is our contribution to the product development community’s rapidly maturing practices in responsible design.
Modular designs are not only more easily recycled at the end of their life but also more easily repaired, and therefore last longer.
