Book News Annotation:
The third edition of this colorful guide to eco-friendly products is fully revised to include the latest advances in sustainable design. Covering items from shoes to end tables to toothpaste to modular buildings, each entry includes a photograph and description as well as a key that indicates the origin of the product, its main material components and the ecological strategies employed in its manufacture. Hundreds of products are represented from categories such as appliances, transportation, machinery, textiles and building materials. This work functions as reference guide to sustainable products but its colorful photography and brief descriptions make it enjoyable for general readers with an interest in ecology and design as well. Fuad-Luke is a consultant and lecturer on sustainable design. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
