WHAT IS ECO DESIGN?
Fundamentally good eco design encourages our communities to pool resources and work together - creating efficient local groups working towards a common aim of a better quality of life with a reduced impact on the environment.
This can happen in a number of ways, such as the conservation of natural resources that we have; whether it be oil, gas, water or electricity; the use of renewable materials and services or simply by doing our bit and recycling whatever can be used again, be it glass bottles, clothes or furniture.
But without good design - that which raises the emotions, and gets us all fired up, how do we hope to encourage the sorts of numbers needed to switch to sustainable living, to really make a difference? Aspiration and style play key roles in getting us to make the switch to a better cleaner way of living.
We can't all hope to live in shiny new wind turbine powered eco houses but there is much that we can do in our homes, lives and working environments that can make a real difference. Heath Design can show you the way...
