Top 70 Eco Trends in July

From Water Conservation Structures to Transparent Home Gardens

— July 31, 2014 — Eco
The top July 2014 eco trends beautifully showcase the ways designers all over the world are creating sophisticated products with nature. Designers are proving capable of producing modern and contemporary products with a variety of rustic and raw materials.

To complement the summer weather, brands are fusing a beautiful union between fashion and the environment through products like vegan skate shoes, biodegradable wedding gowns and shirts stitched together by thread sourced from recycled plastic bottles.

A variety of brands are also creating interactive experiences to promote environmentalism. Bicycle company A2B teamed up with VeryFirstTO to offer a 12-city bike tour to experience fashion and culture of some of the most iconic European cities like Milan and Paris.

In an effort to promote the protection of a variety of endangered species, Jarvis Production created an interactive game during which players care for a digital pet that is endangered such as a panda, a snow leopard and Tasmanian devils.
