what we did

For 5 years, William McDonough has put his trust in Blue Practice to advocate for his cherished brand. As an established leader well before we came on the scene, we manage media and communications for his many enterprises. His first book, Cradle to Cradle is the textbook on sustainability at university and college programs worldwide.

As part of our ongoing support for his work, we launched his most recent book “The Upcycle” and secured national publicity for the book and its themes.
