Design-inspired business asks amazing questions: how might we design factories that give back more clean energy to the world than they use while also radically cutting costs?  How might we design a gym shoe that not only reduces waste in landfills but regenerates our ecosystems--for example OAT's "shoes that bloom" where you literally plant them in your backyard when they are done...and they become a tree!  You know what? These things are already being done.

 

From oil-repellent coating inspired by water bugs, to using prairies as a model to grow food sustainably, to observing how chimps cope with illness, the possibilities of learning from our planet’s unexplored reservoirs of intelligence are vast. “What if there was a boat designed to clean the water? Or how about a phone that enhances your hearing?”  Or how about not just shoes that bloom (and make a leading business) but also economies that bloom?  Designers would say: it can happen!
