A sustainability framework integrating design and science that eliminates the concept of waste. The three main tenets are:

  1. recycle everything to become either technical nutrients or biological nutrients
  2. use more clean energy and Renewable Energy sources
  3. celebrate diversity in finding solutions for problems.

Cradle-to-Cradle involves designing products and systems in a way that they can be turned into new products of equal, if not greater, value at the end of their useful life.
