From Railroad-Topping Parks to Meal Kit Mini Fridges

As the September 2016 eco trends reveal, there is a growing push to make urban spaces and modern conveniences better for humans and the planet. Whether it is adding green spaces to densely packed cities or making services such as meal delivery kits less wasteful, it is clear that sustainability is increasingly becoming a priority for many consumers.

In terms of making urban spaces more eco-friendly, many cities have sought to add more greenery to their concrete jungles. For instance, Toronto's newly proposed Rail Deck Park will bring a touch of green to the city's downtown core. Similarly, Bangkok is currently considering building a series of parks and pedestrian pathways under its existing network of highways.

Beyond efforts to increase greenery, there is also a push to reduce waste. Indeed, as the September 2016 eco trends reveal, consumers are increasingly looking for ways to cut down on the amount of waste generated by modern conveniences. Some of these anti-waste initiatives include reusable mini fridges for meal kit deliveries, compostable single-serve coffee pods and biodegradable paint products.
