Okala Guide 2007

PRESS RELEASE

The Okala Design Guide is a super tool for designers and product manufactures making environmental choices in the design of new products. It offers immediate, practical feedback on material selections and their global environmental footprints.

Okala provides an introduction to ecological and sustainable design for practicing and beginning designers. Okala means "life sustaining energy" in indigenous Hopi language.

It envisions a future where we recognize the value of global ecology and work to insure its protection. The Okala guide revised in 2007 with emphasis on usability to practicing designers and design students.

Okala was co-developed by Philip White, Louise St. Pierre and Steve Belletire. Eastman Chemical, Whirlpool and the IDSA/EPA Partnership supported its development. The course modules were designed to be easy to integrate into existing classes.
