The circle of life


Our friends at Re-nest have posted a very useful life cycle assessor. Looking at it, you realize that there’s a lot to think about when acquiring a new item. When you purchase a widget, it’s helpful to think about it all the way from the raw materials to its disposal. And there are other questions to consider too! Re-nest lists an extensive list, including:

  • Are employees treated fairly?
  • What is the typical lifespan?
  • Is it recyclable?

Do you think this is a realistic tool? Is this something you think about not only for your own personal purchases, but also for your building projects?
