Top 100 Eco Trends in July

From Ethically Made Plant-Based Shoes to Reusable Car Batteries

— July 28, 2019 — Eco
The July 2019 eco trend round-up boasts some cutting-edge examples of how brands, designers and communities are handling the threat of climate change through sustainability-focused initiatives and updates to operational activities.

Many of the examples are quite imaginative, some are high-tech. It is evident that people are really pushing the boundaries of different materials to create viable alternatives that will offer a planet-friendly resource for continuous use. From MakeGrowLabs who uses agricultural waste to create eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging to Wild Type who is revolutionizing the way we consume fish with lab-grown salmon, some of the examples in the July 2019 eco round-up are mind-boggling and signaling how far science and technology have taken us. In addition, it is evident that these innovations are of interest, as MakeGrowLabs, for example, has to move to a larger facility to meet demand.
