gesture-seating-steelcase08Think is a sleek, environmentally friendly chair designed by Steelcase. It is ergonomically optimized for the demands of modern working conditions and its materials go through the Cradle-to-Cradle cycle.

Paul Hawken writes in The Ecology of Commerce that “what most people see in their garbage cans is just the tip of a material iceberg; the product itself contains on average only 5 percent of the raw materials involved in the process of making and delivering it. Every American consumes about 6 pounds of resources a week, while 2,000 pounds of waste are discarded to support that consumption”.

C2C certified products solve two environmental problems at once. Materials don’t end up in landfills and oceans while less pressure is placed on exhausting resources.
