Top 100 Eco Trends in March

From Biodegradable Beauty Pots to Bee Survival Aid Devices

— March 24, 2018 — Eco
March 2018 eco trends reveal environmentally friendly innovations in everything from simple at home items, to broader tech initiatives.

An example of the former includes Naviter's Atopic range, which is a biodegradable packaging product for beauty items. The sustainable sourcing of the packaging, which is made from wood from Nordic forests, could be applied to a variety of other home packaging, product and decor items – perfect for eco conscious consumers.

With bee population declines being huge problems for agricultural systems around the world, researchers like those behind the Bee Hospital are looking to halt this decline in its tracks. The Bee Hospital offers various nutrients that lure bees into the surrounding area, with the hope that they will reinvigorate the ecosystem in the places the hospital is placed.
