Now that summer is in full swing, many of the top August 2015 eco ideas help to make outdoor environments more comfortable with cabins, hammocks, planters and lanters, many of which can be assembled through DIY projects.

In order to express the same level of enthusiasm that consumers have in caring for the environment, many brands are also stepping up to promote sustainability with eco-friendly elements as the main selling feature. A few great examples of this include the Unifrutti Japan banana stickers, eyeglasses by Featherwood Frames and the modular upcycled carpets by FLOR.

Since material selection is a big part of what makes a product sustainable or not, some of the most inventive new materials include the HoneyBee Wrap, leather made from fruits and vegetables, as well as FOODSCAPES dishware made from food scraps.
