Recognizing the challenges of introducing sustainable principles to an industry that quite literally thrives on producing more and more, well, stuff, Casey, 37, founded the Designers Accord. It's a fluid, global coalition of designers and business leaders who are committed to agreeing on and implementing stringent yet practical environmental design policies. Having honed her own design chops at companies such as Pentagram, frog design, and IDEO, Casey now works as an independent consultant, advising clients such as NakedPizza on how, when, and why to use design appropriately and responsibly.
