Top 100 Eco Trends in October

From Refillable Eco Toothpastes to Compostable Crisps Bags

— October 16, 2021 — Eco
The October 2021 eco ideas aim to change the way we consume our products. As a species, humans have made physical modifications to the planet's geology and ecosystems, which has led to a new scientist-proposed geological epoch dubbed the Anthropocene.

Companies understand the geological impact of landfills, which is why many are offering alternative and sustainable product packaging. Off the Eaten Path's packaging, for example, is now industrially compostable, generating roughly 60% less greenhouse gas emissions than traditional bags.

The cosmetic industry is also participating in the eco-movement. HAAN fights against the Water Crisis with the launch of a new refillable toothpaste collection called Vibrant Journeys. These packaging changes might not undo the human-induced Anthropocene, but they will help change consumer habits to create a more sustainable and eco-conscious future.
