What is Eco Design?

Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) or Life Cycle Design

LCA involves looking at the material cycle (either cradle to grave or cradle to cradle) and all processes, and assigning them a value based on energy usage in creating, processing, transporting, recycling, and environmental and social costs. Incremental improvements in green design are easy to quantify when using LCA values by selecting materials and processes that are more green.
