Designers, Architects, and Manufacturers are rethinking the word “green” in 2012 to encompass a complete lifestyle. As a result its definition is now encompassing: sustainable, organic, local, authentic, reclaimed, re-purposed, renew, rethink and react. No longer a buzz word green design is about healthy living in the home, kitchen, bath, office, and work environment. The Eco Revolution is one of the top trends changing the design industry. This Tuesday let’s co-create, share, and showcase our best green practices, tools, and stories and learn about ideas for sustainable action. Join Interior Designer Chat on Twitter @IntDesignerChat Tuesday February 21, 2012 for a global discussion on The Eco Revolution. 6pm, EST, 5pm CST, 3pm PST, 3pm PST, and 11p GMT.
Green design is design that goes beyond being just efficient, attractive, on time and on budget. It is a design that cares about how such goals are achieved, about its effect on people and on the environment. An environmentally responsible professional makes a commitment to constantly try to find ways to diminish design’s impact on the world around us. It is also a smart way of doing business: sustainable design is the fastest growing segment of our industry.1
