The February 2016 eco trends reveal that consumers are looking for more eco-friendly ways to carry out everyday activities. These sustainable lifestyle changes include everything from the way that we commute to work each day to the way we power up our digital devices at home.

One of the major ways that consumers are adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle is in the form of transportation. Many consumers, particularly Millennials, are abandoning traditional forms of transportation for more sustainable choices. These alternative forms of transport include electric scooters that are compact enough to take on the subway, commuter-friendly e-bikes that facilitate urban navigation and all-electric vehicles that cut down on greenhouse gas emissions.

Another step that many consumers have taken to make their lifestyle more sustainable is reducing their consumption of resources. Indeed, the February 2016 eco trends reveal a number of new devices that help consumers cut back on everything from water to electricity. Some of the best examples include customizable conservation showerheads, solar-powered barbecues and kinetic energy smartphones.
