Product development professionals have significant influence over how the products we design impact the environment. Many of us have implemented sustainable design processes and strategies but we sometimes fail to share the tools we use to achieve more sustainable design solutions.
That’s why we’re encouraging every development professional to be aware of IDES Prospector Green Search. IDES is a great tool which helps designers specify plastic materials with lower environmental impact. This is a free tool and very easy to use IDES Prospector Green Search.
Designers can use tools like this to lead the effort in material specification. Engineers can make this part of their toolbox and become more familiar with the range of more sustainable and affordable plastic options.
