Designers and end-users are increasingly focused on the connection between the products they specify and the subsequent impact on health and wellness. As such, the topic of transparency has never been more important. This CEU explores the various aspects of transparency, including material ingredients, environmental impacts, and end-of-life practices, and reveals available tools that help designers and end-users accomplish their sustainability goals.
i+s’ Continuing Education Series articles allow design practitioners to earn continuing education unit credits through an article.
After reading this article, you should be able to:
- Explain the concept of life cycle thinking
- Describe how transparency can impact health and wellness
- Identify solutions for better navigating transparency
- Discuss how transparency tools can reveal health and wellness criteria for flooring and other building product selection
