The most important feature of the redesigned Copenhagen Zoo Elephant House is that it keeps the humongous mammals happy. The dome-like facility was designed specifically so that it would encourage socialization and enjoyment.

The facility has a naturally daylight interior, something that most traditional zoos have yet to incorporate into their design. The elephants were already a popular attraction at the zoo, and the new dome will surely bring in more attention.

Implications - Consumers are trying to stay better connected with nature despite the increasing number of harms emerging today. Products that promote a sustainable lifestyle are attractive to those who want to be green-friendly. Companies could integrate an aspect of the environment into all of their items.
