Eco-nomical Previously expensive eco alternatives get an affordable overhaul for the masses Implications - Eco alternatives are often associated with a higher price tag, but a variety of companies are expanding green offerings into the mass market with designs that are priced to suit any income bracket. As the eco movement becomes further ingrained in Western culture and consumers desire more than ever to become part of the trendy green movement, affordable eco innovations are allowing consumers on a budget to get involved, while also reinforcing that there are no reasons left not to adopt a lower impact lifestyle.

Beauty Minimalism A shift toward minimalist ingredients in cosmetics encourages simple packaging Implications - An industry once dominated by gilded jars of face cream and mystery ingredients, the world of cosmetics has given way to the rise of DIY digital, reverting back to basics. This is reflected in both the onslaught of organic products, as well as minimalist packaging. Ultimately, consumers see minimalist packaging as a more trustworthy tactic meant to put the product in the spotlight.

Upscale Nourishment Minimalist milk packaging offers an elegant approach to nutritional products Implications - With adulthood often requiring individuals to break free of their childhood tendencies, products traditionally associated with youth become easily dismissed as adolescent, prompting brands to turn to more upscale aesthetics in attempts to lure a more mature and sophisticated market audience. Branding such nutritional goods as milk products with minimalist design aesthetics adds contemporary appeal to an otherwise ordinary childhood product, combining modern aesthetics with the need to market products in a more cultivated manner.

Primitive Packaging Rustic wood branding caters to more rugged, outdoorsy male consumers Implications - With male consumers often relying less on emotional instincts compared to female buyers, brands are turning to more visually relatable aesthetics that allow men to easily associate the product with their persona. Rustic packaging, such as chopped log bottles, provide a sense of simplicity and ruggedness that masculine consumers can relate to, combining natural elements of the outdoors with the need to cater to a consumer's personal interests.

Blatant DIY Consumers stop hiding the ways that they're creating or modifying fashions Implications - Traditionally, the concept of DIY was to create or augment something as an imitation or enhancement on an original. This notion is going right out of vogue as DIYers proudly opt for styles and designs that are blatantly done by themselves. Bringing a community of consumers that have previously tried to hide efforts into the spotlight, the designs are being bolstered by blogs and social media sites like Pinterest that categorize DIY as a formal fashion trend as opposed to a casual hobby.

Economical Cuisine Minimalist meal carriers cater to contemporary consumers looking to save money Implications - Constantly eating out can often become too overwhelming for cash-strapped consumers, prompting methods to make meals more convenient and cost-effective. Minimalist lunch bags allow consumers to easily pack food through sleek and contemporary carriers, combining practical cost-saving techniques with the adult need for maintaining maturity.
