Edgy Sustainability

Greenery adapts to include dark and morbid aesthetics

Implications - Greenery takes a dark and edgy approach as macabre imagery becomes normalized in consumer culture. Mimicking things like skulls and fossils, products like planters add an eclectic flair to traditionally subtle household goods. This shift in the eco aesthetic reflects a continuing desire for shock value not only in media, but in everyday life as well.
