1. I will choose my desk.
a. I need a clean, large space to write, attend virtual class with my laptop, and do work.
b. My desk is currently made of plastic. I could re-design it using sustainable materials like wood, bamboo, or recycled material. I could also rent it so that I can return it when I move out of Baltimore instead of throwing it away.
c. The sustainable principles I used are durability and materials.
d. The economic benefits of renting would be not having to worry about repairs or end of life disposal. Environmental benefits include lower waste due to reuse and more sustainable materials used.
e. The business model could be both waste to wealth and lease ownership.
f. This product would belong any and all of the technical cycles at different points in its lifespan.
