20 Eco-Friendly Initiatives

From Zero-Waste CPG Packaging to Charitable Fashion Auctions

— May 23, 2020 — Eco
Eco-friendly initiatives are an important constituent of today's economy and sustainability is a pillar for many organizations and businesses. These planet-minded measures do not only extend to a given product but are fully embedded in how modern brands operate—from a marketing perspective, as well as in light of their production practices and the employee work experience.

The North Face, for example, is sending its employees to the Renew Workshop's 'Renewal Design Residency' where they can learn how to work with sustainability as a driving force. Other brands, such as Burt's Bees partner with companies like TerraCycle to launch specialized recycling programs for their products which ultimately gives consumers peace of mind, but also strengthens and streamlines the sustainable brand experience.
