What is Sustainability?
Designing sustainably is about much more than using recycled papers and papers from sustainable forests. It's about the experience and impact it makes on the audience and the environment.
D Banzon Design is an eco-conscious studio designing with purpose, for longevity, and with respect for the human condition.
As visual problem solvers, we are very interested in what we can do to have an impact in creating a more sustainable future. All aspects of human existence are affected by our environment. Sustainability is a quality of life issue. If your projects involve environment, energy, community,
or lifestyle we want to partner with you to bring solutions to market.
We have taken the Design Can Change pledge:
In my professional practice, I will endeavor to:
Learn: Engage in the topic and seek to understand the issue
Think: Make a sustainable mindset second nature
Act: Put my knowledge to work in my daily work
Inform: Share information and build awareness for sustainability
Unite: spark change though collective strength

We can change our habits and make a difference to the environment one decision at a time. Learn all about the campaign - visit www.stopthinkgreen.com
Here is a great of definition of sustainability taken from www.re-nourish.com:
“Sustainability is a systemic concept. It relates to the relationships between economic, social, institutional and environmental aspects of human existence. It calls for current economic needs to be met while preserving biodiversities and ecosystems to maintain the same quality of life for future generations.”
- Respect and care for the community
- Improve the quality of life
- Conserve Earth’s vitality and diversity
- Minimize the depletion of non- renewable resources
- Change personal attitudes and practices to keep within the planet’s carrying capacity.
