While some are undertaking large sustainability projects, others are hoping to help the environment with the products they use in their everyday lives, as evidenced by these April 2015 eco innovations. Similar to the inclination towards natural products in the world of beauty, people are turning increasingly toward green cleaning and sustainable packaging.

Natural cleaning formulations can either be something people make at home or buy in stores. Whether it's your morning coffee or burial plans of a deceased love one, the circle of life is definitely in mind for the eco-conscious consumer. City dwellers are also looking for ways to integrate greenery into their living spaces, using hydroponic technology, crowdfunding campaigns and clever architecture. Another element of daily life, transportation, is present in April 2015 eco ideas, especially concerning energy generation and manufacturing processes.
