Top 100 Eco Trends in August

From Repurposed Face Mask Seats to Eco-Friendly Dolls

— August 28, 2021 — Eco
The increasing social awareness of climate change and the devasting impacts of pollution on our planet has led to the August 2021 eco-innovations. Companies across all industries are experimenting with new materials and manufacturing processes to create a sustainable future.

Many brands have taken to reusing recycled materials to extend the lifecycle of otherwise discarded products. B-Kind Dolls, for example, are made from recycled materials and sustainably packed in reusable boxes. In addition, the dolls encourage kids to put sustainability into practice.

The Veil Stool also seeks to reuse discarded material from face masks that have quickly become commonly found litter along the streets of London. The designer reworks and sanitizes the masks to transform them into a piece of furniture. Both mentioned products showcase alternative methods of creation that involve sustainable practices.
