Cradle to grave

Cradle to crave is a term used to describe the one-way, linear material flows (out and input) that exist in industrialised societies (see life cycle assessment LCA). Resources are extracted, manufactured into products, used and often disposed of in a landfill or waste to energy facility. In life cycle assessment the term is used to imply that an LCA study has considered the entire product life cycle, in contrast to studies that only consider impacts from ‘cradle-to-gate’. See eco fashion dictionary cradle to cradle design, cradle to gate
