Top 100 Eco Trends in September

From Sustainable Eyewear Materials to Low Carbon Garment Brands

— September 27, 2020 — Eco
These September 2020 eco innovations include sustainable eyewear materials and low carbon garment manufacturing.

The Sunski Dipsea blue light glasses are a standout, featuring a design that marries style with protection. The glasses are marketed towards professionals and avid tech users looking to reduce eye strain and cell deterioration. They are also crated from a recycled resin material, making them a go-to choice for the eco-conscious consumer.

Studio PriestmanGoode's new fast food packaging concept is another notable example. Titled 'Zero,' the container collection aims to help fast casual restaurant meet sustainability goals more seamlessly. Centered around an "incentive-based food delivery concept, the system substitutes single-use plastic with an attractive [fast food packaging] alternative that could be reused again and again."
