This is a nice, easy to read book full of sustainable design tidbits.

You're not going to know a ton about sustainable design after reading this, but it's a great way to get started.

Recommends it for: designers of all sorts
Good enough look at making yourself a better, in terms of "sustainability," designer. Focuses on practical solutions and real case studies of companies implementing sustainable practices. Perhaps a little light on theories, but heavy on applicable information and places to look for new ideas and materials. Good start for anyone interested in becoming a "sustainable" graphic designer.
