unnecessary packaging, energy and waste
during the manufacturing stage and also
tries to reduce the products ecological

whole of the product's lifecycle.
This stage also involves the designer
thinking about the product's built in
obsolescence. (This is when a product
gradually becomes non-functional by design
so that the product will be repurchased
again by the customer) and how to try and
avoid the use of it as all the old products
which are non-functional become useless
and are dumped in landfills etc.
