Good Future Design Alliance – GFDA2021-07-22T18:54:23-06:00
The design + build industry is fueling a culture of waste. The GFDA is forging a new, radical path.
The Good Future Design Alliance is a community of design + build professionals dedicated to reducing our total waste by 50% over five years. Our values are everything to us:
We’re consuming nearly 2X what our planet can handle. We have no other choice. We have to put our planet first.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
We are tried & true believers in the 1970s slogan “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” Our toolkit is designed entirely around this ethos. We want to decrease the amount of new stuff that gets bought, built, & manufactured. That’s Reduce. We want to deconstruct & redistribute whenever and wherever possible. That’s Reuse. We put in the work to divert as much waste as possible from landfill. That’s Recycle.
Impact through scale.
We’re building a nationwide movement of design + build professionals who are willing to innovate in their businesses for the sake of our planet. This movement is about scale, because that’s the only way to create lasting change.
It’s not about perfection.
Don’t think you can reduce by 50%? We disagree & invite you to join us anyway. We’re here to help. Let’s decrease our industry’s waste footprint together.
We love beautiful design just as much as you do. And, we believe that designing with the planet in mind produces higher quality, longer-lasting environments for future generations to enjoy.
