In this book we show how we can improve the quality of the stuff around us. We can do this by using the right materials to prevent pollution by toxic materials. We need to be able to recycle things by using the materials they contain to make new stuff and by returning nutrients in materials back to the earth. This way of making and using is called Cradle to Cradle®.
