Design Revolution: 100 Products That Empower People


Emily Pilloton's forthcoming book, "Design Revolution: 100 Products That Empower People" drives home the notion that, while going green benefits the environment, the real way to save the planet and ourselves goes beyond just designing biodegradable products and instead involves creating tools for changing the world.

Products span all-terrain wheelchairs, waterless washing machines, safer baby bottles, efficient water transporting systems—to name just a few of the smartly-designed and beautifully-executed concepts she includes.

The book itself, with its in-depth presentation of the products and systems, as well as with an ebullient but clear-sighted foreword from Amazon.
