Learn to design like nature, finding inspiration in natural cycles where "trash" and "waste" are nonexistent and, where instead, everything has a continuous purpose. Instruction studies industrial-age systems, such as extraction, manufacturing, assembly, disassembly, and packaging, and explores ways in which these systems can be sustainable. The focus is on developing closed-loop systems thinking to view processes, organizations, materials, buildings, transportation, and all else from a cradle to cradle lens, wherein every item has infinite use and possibilities.
