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
