“Here's where redesign begins in earnest, where we stop trying to be less bad and we start figuring out how to be good.”
William McDonough, Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

“Ultimately a regulation is a signal of design failure...it is what we call a license to harm: a permit issued by a government to an industry so that it may dispense sickness, destruction, and death at an "acceptable" rate.”
William McDonough, Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

“Consider this: all the ants on the planet, taken together, have a biomass greater than that of humans. Ants have been incredibly industrious for millions of years. Yet their productiveness nourishes plants, animals, and soil. Human industry has been in full swing for little over a century, yet it has brought about a decline in almost every ecosystem on the planet. Nature doesn’t have a design problem. People do.”
William McDonough, Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things
