Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things, by William McDonough and Michael Braungart

This is arguably one of the few most influential sustainability books to date. The authors present a manifesto calling for a new industrial revolution, one that would render both traditional manufacturing and traditional environmentalism obsolete. The authors envision eliminating the concept of waste altogether, while preserving commerce and allowing human creativity to thrive. They offer several compelling examples of corporations that are not just doing less harm, ones that are doing some good for the environment and their neighborhoods, and making more money in the process. Cradle to Cradle is a refreshing change from the intractable environmental conflicts that dominate headlines. It's a handbook for 21st-century innovation and should be required reading for everyone.
