Implications - As today's urban populations continue to grow at an escalating rate, more individuals are encountering a weakening relationship with nature. Businesses that devote their efforts to re-establishing a strong relationship between consumer and the environment will likely generate favorable results. Consumers will flock to products that enable them to enjoy the great outdoors in an urban setting.
