Sustainable Minds Online LCA Software
Many designers have begun using lifecycle analysis (LCA) to evaluate the environmental responsibility of their design choices. LCA calculators are becoming more common, though many are external applications that are not easily embedded into the design process at every step. Sustainable Minds, however, is a process-focused LCA software available online and on-demand. The software is not just a calculator, but a helpful application and resource center with relevance at every step of the design and product development process. The current version is available in Beta, and can be used by anyone on a 30 day trial basis.
