People around the earth are waking up to the benefits and longterm necessity to adapt a more sustainable lifestyle. At Better Earth, we're constantly looking for ways to be more sustainable, and well, better. Here are 6 trends we see gaining extra traction throughout this year and 2020.
The grow-your-own movement is also set to continue apace, as more and more people grow at least some of their own food in their garden, on a balcony or roof, or even just on a sunny windowsill inside their homes.
Speaking of food – vegan cuisine is another growing sustainable trend – set to grow even more in 2020. As more people realise the true carbon and environmental cost of eating meat, delicious plant-based meals will be increasingly popular. And believe us, some of the team here absolutely loves a good hamburger, but we're getting better.
Reusable Food Containers
The problem with plastic waste will drive the trend (for businesses and consumers) towards natural, reusable food containers in stores, take-out places and restaurants. Supermarkets may trend towards selling food loose to take away in your own container rather than in single use plastic.
From solar panels, to passive solar design, from solar water heating to solar ovens, 2020 is set to see an increase in the number of people joining the growing band who are making the most of the energy from our sun. If you own a home in California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, or Utah be sure to give Better Earth a call.
Another growing trend is upcycling furniture, apparel, and more – tapping into the massive desire to DIY, upcycling is another trend set to expand in 2020, as people reuse to keep things from landfill.
Slow Travel Adventures
Eco travel will also grow in 2020 – especially slow travel adventures like hiking, biking, sailing, kayaking and more...
