Top 100 Eco Trends in March

From Sustainable 3D-Printed Jewelry to Plastic-Free Sunscreens

— March 31, 2020 — Eco
After the call for sustainability entered the mainstream, many companies began rethinking their practices and methods of production and the March 2020 eco round-up calls attention to the newest trends in this space. Many concepts are embraced in the quest for a greener future and two of the more prominent ones in this list are closed-loop CPG and plastic-free products.

In terms of waste-reducing packaging, Loop is definitely a purveyor and the platform is being expanded to cover the operations of major retailers like Walgreens, Kroger, Tesco, Loblaw's, and more. The cannabis industry is also following this approach as portrayed by the ReStalk Recycled Cannabis packaging.

When plastic-free comes to the forefront, on the other hand, the March 2020 eco round-up calls attention to Sun Juju's mineral-based sunscreen and the plantable 'Pass It On' candles.
