Top 100 Eco Trends in October

From Massive Indoor Bicycle Parks to Upcycled Firehose Dog Toys

— October 26, 2019 — Eco
Since sustainable social and business practices are of interest to contemporary consumers and owners, the October 2019 eco list provides a glimpse of what is up-and-coming in the category.

One of the bigger projects that deliver a regional impact is "the world's largest bicycle park," which will promote cycling, increase safety, and alleviate congestion at Utrecht Central Station in the Netherlands. Another noteworthy concept comes from PriestmanGoode -- a firm that developed a prototype for a waste-free plane meal experience. Given the amount of plastic that is used in-flight per passenger, the solution is of great importance.

In addition, the October 2019 eco list also brings new instances where companies like New York Fries and One Planet Pizza are tackling the problem of plastic package waste.
