Implications - The eco-movement has challenged what consumers think of as waste. Efficiency and resource management are values that eco-conscious customers value. Companies that can reuse their waste to launch products that are clever and aesthetically appealing will garner the attention of this demographic. Brands might consider how to use their packaging to create something new.
