Why do we need eco design? The video looks at the social and environmental issues that are driving the need for products to be designed in a environmentally and socially responsible way. The video was created by Leyla Acaroglu from Eco Innovators (Helping People See Environmental Impacts Better) and set to music by Monkey Marc.

Demand eco design for new products...
