Top 60 Eco Ideas in December

From Eco Feline Homes to Lightweight Water Bottles

— December 27, 2014 — Eco
This collection of the top December 2014 eco ideas reflects the effort on behalf of brands to effortlessly integrate an eco-friendly lifestyle into the lives of consumers. Brands are transforming everyday activities like drinking water, driving and brushing your teeth to reflect a lifestyle that respects and integrates Mother Nature.

In addition to the onslaught of eco automobiles hitting the market -- most recently, the The SP:01 by Detroit Electric -- there are also products that can be within the car to make the experience more green. The PURGGO car air purifier, which looks like a pillow for the back of your seat, actually cleans the air within vehicles.

When it comes to getting your eight glasses a day, there are now plenty of options to accomplish this in a waste-free way. Recyclable bottles and faux glass bottles make it easy to stay hydrated without all the waste.

For more insight into the top December 2014 eco ideas, please refer to Trend Hunter's 2014 Eco Trend Report.
