Many people may think ecodesign is only environmentally friendly design.
Although it definitely encompasses this, ecodesign can be much more broadly defined, considering that ecology is the relationship between living things and their environment, the study of those relationships and the balance or imbalance between them.
Our definition for ecodesign, is design that positively impacts people, animals and the environment.
Ecodesign can include green design, ethical design, eco-friendly design and sustainable design, it is also design that is socially and environmentally responsible.
As designers, architects, builders and critically as consumers, we have the power (and the responsibility), to positively impact our planet by embracing ecodesign and making more socially responsible, sustainable and environmentally friendly selections.
