Remaking the Way We Make Things explains, through a careful analysis of the production method of goods since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, that willism that can be used to produce something new, once they have ceased to be useful. The certification lla available at several levels: C2C suggests that industry must protect and enrich ecosystems and nature’s biological metabolism while also maintaining a safe, productive technical metabolism for the high-quality use and circulation ,a organic and technical nutrients.
