      An inspiring documentary on the Cradle to Cradle design concept of the chemist Michael Braungart and the architect William McDonough. Winner of the Silver Dragon at the Beijing International Science Film Festival 2006.

      Our landfills are filling up year after year with piles of our waste. We have littered the world with our crap, so to speak. And it’s all because our consumption has kept on rising and rising, but our natural resources are slowly being depleted as we use them more and more.

      The way we’re proceeding, it won’t be surprising if we end up living in one big pile of dump. The idea isn’t far-fetched.

      However, Michael Braungart, a German chemist, and William McDonough, an American architect, seem to have found some solutions to say that we still have hope and we can change the way we manage our wastes.

      Basically, they suggest a more radical form of recycling — in that if we turn waste into something the biosphere can feed on, it would be most beneficial for Mother Earth.

      The two embark on a project called Cradle to Cradle and this documentary will explore what this is all about and if this industrial revolution can truly bring the change the world needs.

      This documentary has totally given me a new outlook on the feasibility of green projects on massive macro-scales. Talk about a meaningful job that pays dividends… too awesome.

      This document had a profound affect on how I perceive Sustainability. I am studying for honours in Sustainable Development and felt that I was fairly lateral and abstract in my thinking, if a little directionless. I now have something of a direction.

      I’m trying to get more suppliers of plastic packaging to start using starch based (derived from non-GMO corn) materials to make plastic packaging.

      Whenever I purchase plastic packaging for my products, I have to buy 10000 units or more. The average woman in western society uses about 160 personal care / cosmetic products a year. This doesn’t even account for food packaging (water bottles, take away food boxes) and product packaging (shopping bags, plastic wraps etc). All this plastic will end up in landfills, rivers and oceans, on beaches and in the seafood we eat – for hundreds of years. Since I learnt about the pacific plastic soup, I’m trying to change all the packaging over to bio-degradable corn plastic.

      It’s a challenge and it’s expensive. But well worth it because knowing my customers are adding more plastic to landfills because of my choice in packaging is eating away at my conscience! I know my customers don’t care whether the packaging is corn or plastic but I do.

      Their book Cradle to Cradle is fantastic!
