Most people are now aware of their eco-footprint and the need to cut carbon emissions. Local councils have set up recycling schemes and people are encouraged to reduce travel emissions, but this is not enough. Designers need to incorporate sustainability considerations into their work, and this book contains both justification and inspiration for Design and Technology teachers wishing to introduce sustainable design into their lessons. Each of the six Rs - rethink, refuse, reduce, reuse, repair and recycle - is considered in relation to each focus area, with suggested activities and sources of further information.
