Top 100 Eco Trends in December

From Sustainable After-Death Centers to Backyard Gardening Kits

— December 7, 2019 — Eco
As climate change threatens our planet, it is important to pay attention to what is out there in terms of sustainable initiatives and product launches — the December 2019 eco gives one a good overview.

From jackets made out of recycled materials to zero waste concept stores, some endeavors are not that surprising. However, the round up of December 2019 eco trends boasts some cutting-edge examples. Murat Ağbaş, for instance, is trying to figure out how to make a car operate only on water. Designers like Anne Larkins from London's Central Saint Martins, on the other hand, are building plant-based alternatives for eggs with pea protein isolate, Kala Namak salt, and alginate — an algae-derived acid.
