In this episode, I share a fundamental principle to guide your design thinking. You should always ask yourself, is this idea based on "primary principles?" And what are "primary principles" anyway? In order to make a campaign or startup that really works to get people to buy a green product or change a behavior, you need to build up your concept from the primary principles of how human beings function.
