Having explored all subject options for constellation, I chose ‘Sustainable Practices’ as I believe that I, as a product designer am a key player in the future of the way that products are made, understanding the importance of being a sustainable practitioner in the consumerist world we live in today. Having read Michael Braungart and William McDonough’s ‘Cradle to Cradle re-making the way we make things’ over the summer, I already have somewhat of an understanding of how I should be applying this Cradle-to-cradle approach, using it as a design framework for going beyond sustainability and designing for abundance in a circular economy, in my practice as a product designer. However, I’m interested and look forward to delving deeper into the matter of the subject and discovering the true meaning of what it is to be a ‘sustainable’ practitioner alongside both the history, and the future of sustainability in practice.
