I approached brainstorming for my research experiments for my degree project as hypothetical statements starting with the phrase "what if..."
...the government made designers put a sustainability "nutrition facts" label on all their packaging solutions?
...designers could no longer use petroleum based plastics in their design solutions?*
...every package had a life beyond the shelf?*
...There was a free resource to help designers grade their packaging against and obtain a green score/standard?
...people knew the truth about the "recycle" symbol and plastics? (dispel common misconception that plastics w/ "triangular" recycle symbol are made from recycled materials)
*denotes prompts requiring more information (ex. mindmaps, lists, etc.) to be posted.
