Contents Notes
A high carb diet for the planet : life upcycles -- Houston, we have a solution : what's next? -- Wind equals food : upcycling energy -- Soil not oil : the resource beneath our feet -- Eat your caviar : celebrating diversity -- The butterfly effect : upcycling into the future -- If you remember these 10 beneficial things, you will have engaged the upcycle. In this follow-up to Cradle to Cradle, the authors draw on the lessons gained from ten years of putting the Cradle to Cradle concept into practice with businesses, governments, and ordinary people and envision the next step in the solution to our ecological crisis: we don't just use or reuse resources with greater effectiveness, we actually improve the world as we live, create, and build.
