Implications - The rise of environmentalism has caused consumers to think more carefully about the carbon footprint of the products they purchase. This global shift has created an exciting opportunity for eco-minded creatives and product designers whose preferred mediums are natural, organic materials. Creative professionals can take advantage of this opportunity by releasing artistic, functional products made with sustainably sourced wood, fur and found objects. This growing target market is motivated by environmentally friendly business practices and contemporary, minimalist form factors; creative professionals should ensure their works reflect these virtues as well.
