Abstract: 

Design is key to the function, meaning, and appeal of products used every day by people throughout the world. It has long been recognized as a critical stage for determining costs and profitability. For those who bring shape to our physical world by designing products, it is also an unparalleled window of opportunity to distinguish products while championing the environment through innovation.

This 36-page guide, produced by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) offers a simple, systematic way to weave environmental considerations into product design while using inspiration from the natural world to distinguish products and optimize design.
