For a smarter, more eco-friendly future

Sustainable Product Design

Change your mindset and the way you work. When you design sustainably, it has the power to change the world. Whether that’s the way we work or live. As champions of environmentally friendly product design, our dedicated team view it as their duty to help lead the way.


In comparison to the more traditional way of developing new products, sustainable design can often be more challenging. Where do you start? What additional things do you need to take into account? Here at 4D Products, we’ll help you to understand and implement the required processes at every phase of your project, always advising you on the most suitable decisions to make your idea as sustainable as possible.

Choose the right approach

Our philosophy is based on upholding the essential attributes of the concept, turning complex and confusing advice into a simple process. The improvement of your product’s impact on the environment needs to consider every angle. There are so many ways you make your product eco-friendly, but we’ll make sure we choose the most appropriate options.

From the materials and supply chain to transportation, our experienced designers will ensure that at the core of the decisions we make they will have real improvements on the product’s life cycle.



Commercially and Eco-Friendly

Sustainable product design isn’t just about creating something that helps reduce the carbon footprint, it also needs to be socially and economically sound, to make the product commercially feasible and really appeal to consumers.

When implemented right, this type of design method can offer a plethora of ways to maximise profits, as well as minimalising impact on the environment. Whether it’s from compliance with future legislation, generating intellectual property, or improved brand reputation, they all benefit you so design and build for the future.

We will work closely with your in house team so we know exactly what is required technically and by your end customers.


A more technically complex product is often conceptualised in 3D CAD. We can also use our creative talents to quickly explore and communicate potential solutions as concept sketches for your consideration.


We will develop detailed ‘manufacture ready 3D CAD models and engineering drawings. We can then supply high quality prototypes from our approved machine shops.


When the design has been tested and approved, we will work with you to agree the best way to move into manufacture. We can manage the supply of components or assembled products, or issue the design data to you if that is your preference.
