One of the most popular eco-friendly design concepts over the past year was incorporating solar technology into a variety of products. Instead of wasting energy, many companies found ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

Part of these changes stem from how the concept of social business is becoming more prominent in contemporary society. Instead of simply offering chances for corporations to donate to charity, many enterprises are now making eco and socially conscious decisions an integrated part of the business. For example, certain architecture firms are solely dedicated to creating environmentally sustainable structures, and incorporate ideas such as solar energy to reduce the harm buildings can have on the health of the planet.
