"My work is not directed to intellectuals, but to what are called 'ordinary people.' And in fact what I expect from them is exactly what they are, that they should understand the world and act according to their decent impulses. And that they should try to improve the world".

Cradle to Cradle
    The phrase "Cradle to Cradle" itself, was coined by Walter R. Stahel in the 1970's, and the current model is based on a system of "lifecycle development" initiated by Michael Braungart and colleagues at the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA) in the 1990s, and explored through the publication A Technical Framework for Life-Cycle Assessment. In 2002, William McDonough in partnership with Braungart released the publication Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things, an effective manifesto for Cradle to Cradle Design, giving specific details of how to achieve the model. The model has been implemented by several companies, organisations and governments around the world, particularly in China and the US. There is C2C Certification available but as of 2006 this is somewhat limited. Cradle to Cradle has also been the subject matter of many documentary films including the critically acclaimed Waste=Food.

Wanna make a statement against how xrays peek in your purse? Artist Evan Roth made his own metal plates and stenciled a message out of them, and inserted them into carry on items. Clearly this would provoke the TSA and they've in fact already replied on their blog to this phenomenon.
