From the right to repair to an off-grid home, sustainable thinking is the way to go.

Factories don't slow down, but they can be more sustainable.ecodesign is growing since Y2K. It works hand in hand with a growing eco-aware movement, and it is also European law.but what counts as eco-design?

Ecodesign is a school of thought where the creation of a product takes into account its environmental impact. Ecodesign is a generic term that includes several fields of study, including sustainable agriculture, intelligent urban planning and ecological engineering.

Simply put, ecodesign seeks to reduce the destructive impacts of a materialistic world. When a product is created with eco-design, it could be made with more sustainable raw materials, use biodegradable packaging, have easily repairable systems, or reduce energy costs.

The creation of a circular economy is a pillar of eco-design. Products made from recycled materials, or that can be recycled themselves, help reduce waste, so they are designed in an environmentally friendly way.

It's all around you, and some may go unnoticed. Ecodesign can be applied at every stage of production: the extraction of raw materials, the manufacture of the product, distribution to stores, its use by the consumer and what happens when it is no longer in use.

Agricultural markets are an example of historical eco-design. Locally sourced products, grown in season by family farms, have a much lower environmental impact than fruit and vegetables sold in supermarkets.

Solar panels for water heating or energy production significantly reduce the use of fossil fuels and help families work towards an off-grid home. Maintaining a water recycling system or reusing pollution can be a way to promote a family's sustainability efforts.

Bottles of recycled materials, rechargeable batteries, reusable coffee capsules, canned water, LED bulbs and organic cotton sportswear are all examples of eco-design.

Sustainability, pure and simple. If we apply the right of repair to smartphones, as the European Union has discussed, we will simply reduce the number of cell phones, because what we already have will last longer. Less production is a net gain for the environment.

By using less materials and energy to create something, companies can reduce their environmental impact while maintaining current production rates. Using biological and biodegradable materials helps the environment both before and after the use of a product.

The European Commission estimates that since 2015, eco-design has stopped the emission of 306 tons of CO2 and the waste of 2545 million liters of drinking water. Eco-design has also saved European consumers 63 billion euros and created 930 thousand jobs. By 2030, these results should improve by 60%.

All this contributes to reducing CO2 emissions and habitat destruction for raw materials. Ecodesign impacts on climate change. By setting energy efficiency standards, for example, consumers can be better informed and reduce their carbon footprint.Ecodesign: Sustainable products for a sustainable Planet
