Top 100 Eco Trends for 2020

From Award-Winning Bio Materials to Eco-Friendly Plane Meals

— February 9, 2020 — Eco
As climate change has invasive and lasting consequences, it is important to keep up-to-date with innovations that will help us reduce our consumer carbon footprint and the 2020 eco trends are a good place to start if one wishes to be more sustainably-minded in the new year.

A lot of the innovations in the 2020 eco trends round-up provide alternatives for wasteful everyday products — from waste-reducing mouthwash tablets to eco-minded bubble tea tumblers. The list also highlights some cutting-edge examples like Lucy Hughes' award-winning biomaterial which is made out of repurposed fish scales and skin. The innovation is given the name of 'MarinaTex.' Other waste-countering packaging includes MakeGrowLabs ' wraps that are made of biowaste and PriestmanGoode's sustainable cabin service design.
