Basically the concept of the book is to promote the idea of Eco Design which means designing products using eco-friendly materials (eg, packaging waste, renewable material, etc). These sustainable products have remained trendy and stylish. When the consumer would like a change, the products can be recycled.

Besides adhering to the green concept, the designers are also concern about consumers’ health – whether the design of the furniture will affect or benefit the consumer, e.g. whether a chair can support the individual’s back and improves blood circulation.

Apart from that, the book also highlights the latest eco-friendly gadgets and vehicles. All these are an eye-opener for people who might not be very aware of global warming and the 3 Rs (recycle, retain and reuse).

The book is a good guide to the understanding and choosing of eco-friendly products.  And for the people who aren’t aware of the green movement , this book will definitely be an eye-opener for them.
