Cradle-to-cradle

Cradle-to-cradle

Term used to describe the recycling of waste materials and manufactured products into new products rather than permanently disposing of them. The concept and its societal implications was the focus of the 2002 book Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things by chemist Michael Braungart and architect William McDonough.
