Bamboo body wipes, solid bath oil bars and environmentally friendly snowboards are among some of the top March 2017 eco design ideas. Across these eco design concepts, one of the most central themes is reducing waste, as well as repurposing materials that have the potential to be used more than a single time.

One of the most notable green design initiatives is that the medals given out at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan will be made from e-waste materials.
