From Algae-Based Shoes to Primate-Saving Chocolate Bars

 - Jun 25, 2017
Whether it is a pair of sneakers made from algae or a chocolate bar that promotes sustainable farming practices, the June 2017 eco trends make it clear that brands are becoming more aware of the need to make their products eco-friendly.

When it comes to clothing and footwear, a number of brands have made significant efforts to use more sustainable materials. For instance, adidas recently teamed up with Aquafil to use regenerated ocean waste to create stylish new swimsuits. Similarly, the shoe company Vivobarefoot has begun using an algae-based foam to create plant-based shoes.

However, it is not just clothing that has gone green. As the June 2017 eco trends reveal, food products are also taking an eco-friendly turn. Examples of more sustainable snack options include Purdys' Clean Water Project Bars, Chapul's cricket-flour energy bars and SecondsFirst's repurposed fish cakes.
