Cradle to Cradle Concept on a Green Roof

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

"The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using
the same thinking that created the situation"  - Albert Einstein

 

The Cradle to Cradle theory reappeared in 2002 with the release of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things by William McDonough and Michael Braungart. A concept dedicated to mimicking nature in which products can be fully recycled. Instead of materials having a specified lifespan, they can indefinitely be transformed into other products. A design created to enrich and benefit the environment even as products are manufactured and used.

Recently, the cradle to cradle design has been proposed for a green roof project in the United Kingdom. By-products from the London Sustainable Industries Park will be collected and transformed into aggregate material used for drainage purposes on green roofs and walkways.

Green Roof Technology has many opportunities to use recycled materials in our projects - as long as the green roof's efficiency isn't compromised or becomes the neighborhood landfill.
