Can eco-design be for everyone? reach chemicals legislation

We have been working on a number of eco-design projects recently at the studio (Hoffi). While going through the initial research of eco-design and how people perceive eco-design the feeling of elitist and middle class came out strongly. In someways this is true eco-design products on average are more expensive than other products on the market, and it seems that this is going to be the case for sometime yet. I did come across a glimmer of hope though when I recently was pointed in the direction of the REACH legislation.
