Biomimicry in design is a sustainable ideology that suggests we design our ecosystems after the organic systems of nature. If we look to nature to solve our design problems, we are certain to find more economically, and perhaps socially, efficient solutions.
We also can design for the waste of products. This can be seen through the example of a small ecosystem in one building: waste from one shop, such as food waste from a restaurant, could be fed to fish in a tank next door, which in turn can be used by the restaurant. Thus we decrease the amount of resources used, including transportation costs.
We can study the ecological systems happening around us, and adapt in the way we interpret and solve problems, effectively mimicking the solutions of nature.
