Top 100 Life Trends of 2015

From Workout-Bartered Subway Fare to Cardio Workout Desks

— December 27, 2015 — Lifestyle
The top 2015 life trends showcase a variety of innovations related to health, well-being and everyday life in general. From public interest campaigns that allow individuals to pay subway fare with workouts to environmentally friendly bio-urns that ensure a low post-life carbon footprint, each product or service demonstrates the shifting values held by consumers globally.

One space that is seeing considerable investment from both the private sector and government agencies worldwide is urban placekeeping. Initiatives like that of the illuminated public bench in Piazza Mazzini in Jesolo, Italy, provide a safe and clean place for neighbors to gather, an important part of the health and well-being of any community.

To further explore the overarching patterns ahead of the new year, check out our 2016 Trend Report.
