Sample Sustainability Pro Trends - Each Sustainability PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online sustainability articles, videos and images. Examples:

Hyper-Portable Packaging Brands encourage product portability to appeal to the on-the-go consumer Implications - As product packaging continues to be more connected to how consumers are choosing products, the incorporation of handles and carriers in packaging is helping to draw in those looking for an on-the-go-focused product. This packaging approach also denotes a shift away from supplementary bag use, as the product is carried as is.

Glamorizing Auto The auto industry turns to more ostentacious marketing tactics Implications - Moving away from straightforward benefits branding, big brands are turning to marketing that puts a greater emphasis on prestigious lifestyle, as opposed to the product.
