More than ever, consumers are becoming increasingly preoccupied with playing their part in making the planet more sustainable and this collection of June 2014 eco trends shows how designers and brands are making it an easy process.

This month continues to see a rise in products repurposing older, discarded objects to make something new and to take on a different function. From tossed out bottle corks being transformed into candles and trash being used to fuel an airplane, designers' innovation is at an all-time high.

The warmer weather also means people are spending more time in their gardens. Brands are not only targeting these consumers with products that make the whole process easier and more efficient, but they are elevating the status of seemingly dirty tasks with items like chic compost bags and app-connected home gardens. Going green has never been easier.

These June 2014 eco trends prove how a niche market can blossom into a global movement. For more examples and expert research, visit Trend Hunter's Eco Trend Report.
