From biodegradable shopping bags that reduce the use of plastic to apartment compost kits that help consumers make use of their food scraps, the March 2016 eco trends reveal a demand for products that make sustainability a part of everyday life. Indeed, as consumers become more conscious of environmental issues there is a desire to make everyday activities more eco-friendly.

While many consumers already purchase products that are organic or cruelty-free, there is now a demand for eco-friendly packaging as well. More specifically, many consumers are looking to cut down on their use of environmentally damaging plastics. Some examples of sustainable packaging include cardboard eyewear boxes, biodegradable shopping bags and plastic-free soap containers.

The March 2016 eco trends also reveal a demand for products that make everyday activities more sustainable. For example, there are apartment-specific compost kits that help consumers recycle food waste. There are also all-natural laundry supplies that contribute to a more energy-efficient household.
