Sample Recycling Pro Trends

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

Architectural Kiosk Brands favor remarkable kiosk designs in spite of short time frames Implications - Despite the fleeting come-and-go nature of kiosks, brands are choosing to move ahead with architecturally striking booth designs. By creating a more stimulating ordering process for shoppers, this development contributes to an emerging obsession with experiential consumer engagement. No matter the application, what remains appealing is the ability to impart lasting impressions.

Incentivizing Sustainability Consumers are enticed to live sustainably with tangible rewards Implications - By gamifying and rewarding sustainable practices, brands and organizations can initiate positive behaviors in consumers and in turn position themselves as catalysts for social change. This market-based approach to the promotion of sustainability is a clever way to equate a single individual's actions to a tangible lesson around the nature of consumption.

Sophisticated Produce Fresh fruit is encased in unexpected packaging for increased sophistication Implications - Redefining how traditional health foods are perceived, brands are adopting unconventional packaging designs for a refined appeal. Moving away from traditionally exposed forms, brands are packaging items like fruit in customized wrappers and containers. These designs not only add a sense of glamour and novelty, but they also allow brands to project a personalized touch on typically homogeneous items.

Interactive Pet Packaging Animal treat branding incorporates experiential aesthetics Implications - The pet food industry is full of stiff competition, and in response, companies are visually engaging animal owners with interactive packaging.

Architectural Juxtaposition Architects are designing a reimagined community hub Implications - As urban planners and governments begin to rethink public spaces, architects and designers are challenging convention by creating dynamic mixed-use structures.

Eco Excursion Consumers turn to functional, eco-friendly travel products Implications - Consumers are adopting a responsible approach to travel through eco-friendly products.

Pouch Obsession Portability is pushed to new levels with pouches for adult use Implications - As consumers' lives become increasingly hectic, a bigger desire for portability is observed. At the same time, a desire for slow-made artisan goods is seen on a mass level, calling for something to satisfy these two opposing needs. Pouches communicate a sense of humility and (sometimes literal) transparency.
