Cradle to Cradle - Sustainability BOOKS

Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make ThingsCradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make ThingsCradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things is a very interesting non-fiction book on sustainability. It was written in 2002 by Michael Braungart and William McDonough.

The cool thing about this book is that it is itself printed using Durabook technology. The pages of this book are not of paper but is actually synthetics made from plastic resigns and fillers. The book is more durable, waterproof and recyclable easily.

The actual concept of Cradle to cradle book is to highlight a sustainable business strategy that mimics the regenerative cycle of nature. That means reusing and recycling the waste as much as we can. So when waste gets accumulated, it becomes nutrients for somebody else. 

The cradle to cradle is a visionary book which focuses majorly on reducing the amount of industrial waste that is doing a lot of damage to natural world. In other words, the book urges on

"Reduce, reuse, recycle," 

As one type of waste equals food for someone else, McDonough and Braungart explains on how to reuse products effectively. They emphasize on re designing everything so that instead of recycling by remaining as close to nature as possible. Thus giving an extremely viable solution to a sustainable and natural way of life. 

This is a great book on sustainability and it informs you about the living model of engineering products in a way which is safe for everyone on the planet, Earth.
