DE LA CUNA A LA CUNA by Leidy Ramirez on Prezi

McDonough and Braungart propose catching the problem beginning at the source: C2C suggests that industry must protect and enrich ecosystems and nature’s biological metabolism while also maintaining a safe, productive technical metabolism oa the high-quality use and circulation of organic and technical nutrients. Currently, many human beings come into contact or consume, directly or indirectly, many harmful materials and chemicals daily.

C2C seeks to remove dangerous technical nutrients synthetic materials such as mutagenic materials, heavy metals and other dangerous chemicals from current life cycles. It calls for a radical change ckna industry: Many critics pleaded for a public-private partnership overseeing the C2C concept, thus enabling competition and growth of practical applications and services.

Remaking the Way We Make Things. Technical nutrients are materials that remain within closed-loop industrial cycles.

Technical nutrients are strictly limited to non-toxic, non-harmful synthetic materials that have no negative effects on the natural environment; they can be used in continuous cycles as the same product without losing their integrity or quality. William McDonough and Michael Braungart. Retrieved 25 November Obviously, disassembling products is not feasible at currently designed civic wllliam sites, and a better method would be to send back the broken products to the manufacturer, so that the manufacturer can disassemble the product.


In Schmidt-Bleek stated that it is out of the question that the concept can be realized on a bigger scale.

Similarly, human constructs can utilize clean and renewable energy in many forms—such as solar, wind, geothermal, gravitational energy ls other energy systems being developed today—thereby capitalizing on these abundant resources while supporting human and environmental health.

Everything can be designed to be disassembled and safely returned to the soil as biological nutrientsor re-utilized as high quality materials for new products as technical nutrients without contamination.

Cradle to Cradle, by William McDonoungh, Michael Braungart

The C2C concept foresees an own certification of its analysis [28] and therefore is in contradiction to international ISO standards and for Life Cycle Assessment whereas an independent and critical review is needed in order to obtain comparative and resilient results. Brezet; Allocation in recycle systems: McDonough and Braungart responded to this criticism by giving control of the certification protocol to a non-profit, independent Institute called the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.

Braungart fully ignores the use phase. Anthropocene Earth system governance Ecological modernization Environmental governance Environmentalism Global catastrophic risk Human impact on the environment Planetary boundaries Social sustainability Stewardship Sustainable development.


In they founded McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry, a firm to assist companies in implementing sustainable design protocols. To ban the belief that human industry has to damage the natural world, given a system where production is based on the expropriation of natural resources that are transformed through an industrial process.

Cradle to Mcdonouth has been translated into 13 languages thus far.

Remaking the Way We Make Things explains, re a careful analysis of the production method of goods since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, that products that can be used to produce something new, once they have ceased to be useful.

Products that can be reincorporated into industrial cycles. For the design theory, see Cradle to Cradle Design. Cradle-to-cradle design also referred to as Cradle to CradleC2Ccradle 2 cradleor regenerative design is a biomimetic approach to the design of products mcdonouyh systems that models human industry on nature’s processes viewing materials as nutrients circulating in healthy, safe metabolisms.

This is dependent on the ecology of the region; for example, organic material from one country or landmass may be harmful to the ecology of another country or landmass. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. When the manufacturer separates the sole from the upper willian separating the technical and biological nutrientsthe biological nutrients are returned to the natural environment while the technical nutrients are used to create the sole of another shoe.

According to the Variants of Life Cycle Fe the entire life cycle of a product or service has to be evaluated, not only the material itself.
