Top 90 Life Stages Trends in October

From Classroom Safety Partitions to Circular Kid Clothes

— October 24, 2020 — Life-Stages
These October 2020 life stages trends range from classroom safety partitions to circular kid-friendly clothing.

Standouts include the Bluemap Design x ClearSpace Safety Barriers, designed to ensure safety within classrooms during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. With students heading back to school, the Bluemap Design x ClearSpace Safety Barriers can easily attach to existing desks and help maintain social distancing within classroom interiors.

Children's circular clothing brand Borobabi is another notable example. The "woman-owned circular clothing solution offers sustainably and ethically produced children's garments for rent so that parents can get more use out of items and prevent outgrown clothes from heading to the landfill." The business is not only good for the planet but saves parents money while reducing waste -- often caused as a result of children outgrowing clothing.
