Abstract: To create the ideal ecological design model is possible by following the constantly renewed ecological information and analysis. In line with this information and analysis, application-oriented eco-materials can be selected and even new ones can be developed. Since "Ecology" is a concept with many variables, techniques and materials differ for each ecological design application. Therefore, the most appropriate eco-material selection can be made in line with the criteria shaped according to the ecological design model, whose main principle is "minimum resource consumption and destruction with maximum benefit, sustainable design". It will be possible to choose the most suitable eco-material in line with the formed criteria. Sustainability could be summarized as "Meeting the needs of today without damaging the ability of future generations to meet their own needs". In this study, ecological and sustainable materials were mentioned and examples were given.
