Sample Ecotourism Pro Trends

Each Ecotourism PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online ecotourism articles, videos and images. Examples:

Sustainable Scent A need for sustainability has air fresheners adopting eco-friendly elements Implications - Combating growing fears over harmful chemicals and health hazards, products like air fresheners are responding with items that take health and sustainability into consideration. Providing natural scents and environmentally friendly packaging, brands are offering a way to enjoy familiar scents, both at home and on-the-go, in a more organic and conscious manner. This ties into the overall desire for a more health-conscious lifestyle in all aspects.

Blatant Faux Fake fur provides mental and physical comfort in more than just clothing Implications - Though physical comfort is still important to consumers, the desire for a clear conscience has consumers seeking alternatives to luxurious, but often cruel fur. This ushers in a wave of faux fur that is so pervasive it is penetrating industries beyond fashion. Consumers are wearing their faux fur badge with pride, un-intuitively going against the glamorization of "authenticity" in favor of passive activism.

Pop Cultured Auto Car companies partner with well-known celebs to create pop culture appeal Implications - Seeking to expand market exposure, high-end brands like those in the auto industry are turning to pop culture collaborations for consumer appeal. Joining forces with celebrities and media icons, auto manufacturers are using the fame and recognition of well-known figures to heighten their products with status. This reflects a need for more approachable marketing tactics, particularly when it comes to more exclusive product designs.

Photographic Play Toys are heightened with personal photographs for familiar appeal Implications - When it comes to distractions, particularly for kids, toys can often deter from more meaningful, family-time activities. Adding an element of familiarity to products like coloring books and kids tech devices, brands are integrating personalized photos and customized imagery for sentimental appeal. This speaks to a shift toward more visually customizable forms of play and entertainment.

Charitable Co-Branding Brands use the popularity of collaborations to show off a charitable side Implications - Celebrities and brands are collaborating to create products and events that serve a socially conscious function. As partnerships tend to attract attention on that basis alone, more brands are using these opportunities as a way to display a charitable side of their company through donation or fundraising.

Soda Upheaval The growing obesity epidemic villanizes sugary carbonated drinks Implications - Health concerns and, furthermore, the battle against child obesity has fingers pointing at soda as an "empty calorie" culprit. As a result, soda is being replaced by more health-conscious alternatives that boast the same strong flavor, caffeine content, and even in some cases, visual branding. This upheaval of a classic American beverage signifies the true strength of the health movement.

Mainstream Restriction The alternative diet transitions from niche to necessary for consumers Implications - As the health movement expands, consumers aren't simply seeking out healthier choices like gluten-free and Vegan, but coming to expect them in products. Brands are responding in kind with blatant packaging that boasts healthful benefits to aid consumers who are browsing for buzz words in the store aisles.

Generational Footwear Instead of fit or function, brands use time periods as inspiration Implications - Although the cyclical nature of fashion is nothing new, brands are using the quintessential aesthetics of specific generations -- past or future -- in design for aesthetic appeal. This approach to design targets consumers more concerned with aesthetics rather than functionality.
