At Zachariasse Consulting, our work starts from our values, inspired by the Cradle to Cradle® philosophy of William McDonough and Dr Michael Braungart, we constantly ask ourselves the most fundamental question:
"How do we love all children of all species of all times ? "
We also strongly believe in business as an engine for change®. Thus our hearts beat behind our work. And from that we derive our passion and our joint success. We believe in a better world and a better future for our children. By applying Cradle to Cradle® principles in our work and projects we grow together, step by step.
Please be inspired by this video from the Cradle to Cradle Products innovation institute:
The Cradle to Cradle® philosophy calls for a radical change in industry: a switch from a cradle-to-grave pattern to a cradle-to-cradle pattern. Our current "reduce reuse recycle" Industrial methods perpetuate a cradle-to-grave strategy. We need to redesign for a strategy of hope. We need to go from "less bad" to "100% good". We discourage downcycling, but rather encourage the manufactures of products to design with the goal of upcycling in mind. Please take a look at this great explanation, courtesy of Reggs:
