As mentioned by inhabitat.com, this year look to be more exciting than the past events, with a whole selection of sustainability-focused events. “You cannot fail to have noticed that everyone has gone eco. From politics to design, the environment is at the top of everyone’s agenda. Of course eco or sustainable design is nothing new – designers have always returned to the theme of reusing and redesigning products. However, sustainability is now being embraced more widely as it soars up the political agenda, and is a major theme running through this year’s London Design Festival (15-25 September).” – Press Release
