Top 100 Eco Innovations for 2021

From Energy Parks to Sustainable Brands

— January 31, 2021 — Eco
2020 was a catalyst for social change, and as the year comes to a close, this list of 2021 eco innovations reminds the reader that this momentum will not slow down in the coming years. Included in this list are sustainable products, alongside nation-wide eco strategies that demonstrate the need for change on a personal, collective and political level.

On a personal note, one way to be more eco-conscious moving forward is to support sustainable brands. This list is filled with examples, such as Plasticity's stylish vinyl bags, which were crafted from discarded umbrellas. On a larger scale, innovative companies are putting their best minds to work to help solve the climate change crisis. As a result, initivaves like Copenhagen's 'CopenHill' -- a waste-to-energy park -- can entertain the city's inhabitants while aiding Copenhagen in its goal of being carbon neutral by 2025.
