Sustainable Product Design
Scientific Principles
The First Law of Thermodynamics (Conservation)
basically says that energy or matter can neither be created nor destroyed.
OR NOTHING DISAPPEARS
The Second Law of Thermodynamics (Dispersion) says
that while the quantity of matter/energy remains the same, the quality
deteriorates over time, flowing from high concentration to lower
concentration.
OR EVERYTHING SPREADS

Sustainability:
Ecological longevity of human support systems
or “conserving an ecological balance by avoiding
depletion of natural resources”
Oxford Dictionaries
“We have not inherited the world from our ancestors
but borrowed it from our children.”
Even though this has been credited as Native American, African, and Chinese,
the only academic reference has it as a
Kashmire Proverb.
In 1987, the UN Brundtland Commission states they are “Concerned about
the accelerating deterioration of the human environment and natural resources and
the consequences of that deterioration for economic and social development,
Believing that sustainable development, which implies meeting the
needs of the present without compromising the ability of future
generations to meet their own needs, should become a central guiding
principle of the United Nations, Governments and private institutions, organizations
and enterprises,”
United Nations. 1987. "Report of the World Commission
on Environment and Development." General Assembly
Resolution 42/187, 11 December 1987. pg. 1 (often
referred to as the Brundtland Report) accessed: 11-25-07
