Abstract
cientists agree that humans are significantly contributing to global warming from the burning of fossil fuels for energy, agriculture, industrial processes, and transportation. This situation affected the environment. Consequently, billions of people will be facing threats of flooding, severe storms, shortages of clean drinkable water, food insecurity and increased risks of disease. These impacts have been well documented by the International Panel on Climate Change. Accelerating in designing environmentally friendly products is essential to help reduce the current and long-term impacts of climate change. This paper discusses some the issues relevant to recycling, energy consumption and energy conservation when making a product. Some recommendations were suggested in conceiving environmental friendly products with least energy consumption
