From Zero-Waste Grocery Stores to Modular Floating Cabins

 - Sep 27, 2017
The environment is immensely complicated, making it fertile ground for the September 2017 eco trends. Though the global atmosphere may be suffering, the vastness of the environment means that there are countless ways in which people can contribute to cleaning it up and treating it right.

Waste is one of the biggest problems as far as ecology is concerned. Packaging is an essential part of the global economy, and there's no way around that fact, so producers are working to create more eco-friendly packaging concepts. For instance, Earthcycle's produce packaging is made from pulp fiber that biodegrades into compost, making it a perfectly sustainable system for packaging fruits and vegetables.

Further, iRigenerati, an Italian smartphone repair company, sends phones back to customers in recyclable, one-size-fits-all packaging that greatly reduces its waste output.
