ARE YOU DOING
GREEN DESIGN?
It is a growing trend within the
fields of architecture,
landscape architecture, urban
design, urban planning,
engineering, graphic design,
industrial design, interior
design and fashion design.

The aim of
green design is to
produce places, products and
services in a way that reduces
use of non-renewable
resources, minimizes
environmental impact, and
relates people with the
natural environment.
