What Is Sustainable Design?

« Sustainable design is the philosophy of designing physical objects, the built environment, and services to comply with the principles of social, economic and ecological sustainability.»

Sustainable design is based on the use of renewable materials to minimise the ecological impact and reduce waste. The choice of materials is crucial: their impact has to be low which means that they should not be toxic or harmful for the environment and they should be built to last. This concept also implies a clever management of energy and a careful selection of energetic resources. Upcycling and recycling are also frequently used in sustainable design as their environmental impact is lower than new materials.

Sustainable Design is not just a word with a big meaning it is a philosophy and a way of living an example that you might identify yourself with would be a cloth bag that you take to your weekly shopping, instead of using the plastic bags at the store every time you shop.

Much of sustainable design can be seen at Moorbi in various forms as fashion, interior design and even toys for the kids. Don’t be the one who misses out on a big trend, because this is what sustainable design is. Be the innovator and a pioneer!
