159 Industry analysts say the sustainable philosophy is no longer viewed as the province of high-end sellers like Nike or Herman Miller, the furniture maker The movement can be confusing to navigate and goes by many monikers cradle to cradle, eco-efficiency, life cycle improvement, closed-loop production

160 In its most utopian form, it envisions a world in which all products are made from natural materials Are 100 percent reusable, recyclable or biodegradable, never ending up in landfill At its most pragmatic, it is mainly about cutting costs by reducing waste, selling recyclable components reusing byproducts like rubber or plastic to create a new product. For a large company, this can mean millions of dollars in annual savings.

161 When sustainability burst onto the scene, it was in the responsibility category, something that a company should do because it was the right thing to do Now it is equally about saving money

162 Its not about two or three green shoes its about changing the way our company does things in general. Brought shoes and athletic clothing to market that incorporate waste from the factory floor and a less toxic type of rubber The company has also reduced its use of solvents, the toxic glue used to cement soles to the bottom of shoes

163 Herman Miller says that 50 percent of its revenue now comes from products that are Cradle to Cradle-compliant, and it is aiming for 100 percent Shaw has collected 300 million pounds of used carpet in the last three years and reused 85 percent of it

164 Method, a maker of household cleaning products, shuns chemicals like ammonia, bleach and phthalates and maintains a list of earth- friendly ones ****When it came to the design of its bottles, the company stood firm Declining to reduce the plastic content beyond a certain point Because it believed that it would make them less visually attractive

165 Its coming from economics, said Marc Stoiber, vice president for green innovation at the Chicago-based business consultancy Maddock Douglas. If you look at the big guys, they embrace green because its all about efficiency.Maddock Douglas Its super-easy to find an environmentally friendly dye that will fade in three washes, said Jenn Rapp, a spokeswoman. But a garment that lasts 20 years is much more friendly than one that lasts five months
