Green Grandeur

Luxurious eco innovations for the affluent environmentally minded consumer
Implications - The idea of eco-friendly living is often accompanied by images of things like used clothing, recycled trash, rusty shipping containers and other non-luxurious innovation. This wrongly associates going green with a less opulent lifestyle, which many designers are striving to correct. Through the availability of high-end products, including extravagant bicycles, designer upcycled goods and even high-end shipping container housing, affluent eco-minded consumers can continue living their lives of luxury without assuming that a greener lifestyle means a thriftier one.
