The premise is great, but even when the author mentions the destruction of an ecosystem (such as the Exxon Valdez oil spill) there is no mention of the indigenous people whose lives, livelihoods, communities, and way of life were also destroyed.
The author also claims that pollution and other aspects of non-sustainable manufacturing are not because of immoral corporate decisions, but just "outdated design". Yikes.

I won a copy from an eco contest! I heard so much about it and finally had a chance to read it. Initially I thought it would have been a stiff and dry read, but it's incredibly enjoyable to read (for an econerdy gal like me) and truly gives me hope for humans and concern for not only ourselves but for the impact we have on the planet and on generations of life forms to come.

Good book on upcycle and cradle to cradle approaches, with plenty of examples for design practices,
