The holiday season is here and it is time to spread some much-needed cheer. This holiday season, more than ever before, people are more eco-conscious about their gift-giving.
While the pandemic has been on the top of everyone’s mind, 2020 is on track to be one of the warmest years on record, completing a streak of six consecutive years each year hotter than the previous. We saw a number of extreme weather events this year, starting with devastating bushfires in Australia, floods in Asia, wildfires in California, and severe droughts in South America, all as a result of climate change. In an age where climate change and its consequences are being seen around the world, we are all becoming more concerned with how brands are mitigating or contributing to these global issues. Eco-consciousness is becoming increasingly important to people as they face or observe climate struggles that are occurring globally.
More and more, people are moving away from global corporations to smaller brands with ethical production processes that align their purchase decisions with their values. For the modern consumer, brands that prioritize sustainability in all aspects of their business–are best aligned with their personal values.
For a long time leading an environmentally friendly lifestyle meant sacrificing other things such as convenience and design, or came at a cost that made it difficult to adopt an eco-friendly lifestyle. Luckily, eco-friendly products have come a long way in terms of design and convenience and many new products have been developed that are not only ethical but are also beautifully designed and easy to use.
