Reusable Packaging Offering a fun, eco alternative, brands focus on use after consumption Implications - A product design that is too disposable is being panned by consumers for the harsh effect it can have on the environment, which has resulted in packaging designed for a second use or purpose.

Swap Commerce Offering discounts for product exchanges, brands push for continued patronage Implications - In an age where online shopping is growing even more ubiquitous each quarter, the scramble to encourage continued patronage when competition is virtually endless is intensifying the focus for retailers more than ever. As such, the seemingly retro concept of exchange for a discount is being adopted as a means to fulfill consumer demand for savings and brand requirement to have them return. This business model is also augmenting brands to be more ecologically sustainable as a result, thus broadening consumer perception.
