From Haunting Ecological Campaigns to Smart Bus Info Boards

 - Sep 3, 2018
The August 2018 eco trends paint a picture of the dedication of businesses, organizations and individuals toward an ecologically sustainable tomorrow. The push toward biodegradable materials and ethical use of resources has been evident. As institutions like Starbucks and McDonald's are abolishing plastic straws from their locations, other businesses are developing the next generation of eco-friendly packaging. The Kaffree cup, for example, is a biodegradable, reusable and dishwasher-safe container made from coffee grounds, sourced from Berlin cafes.

In terms of August 2018 eco architectural initiatives, Miró Rivera Architects developed a sustainable countryside home that is equipped with solar panels, a rainwater-collecting mechanism, as well as a geothermal system that provides the structure with heating and cooling. The home is owned by a family that seeks to motivate an ecology-forward change within their community.
