Sustainable Play Parents search for eco products that will satiate their children's needs Implications - Eco-consciousness typically isn't particularly important to children, but it is to many parents who are becoming more aware of their household's consumption habits. Parents who wish to instill a sustainable mentality in their offspring are searching for products with eco-friendly packaging that's appealing to children. This shift demonstrates that eco-consciousness is being introduced to a younger demographic by increasing product engagement.

However, many retailers have been making the switch to eco-friendly packaging alternatives that are less about delighting consumers, and more about communicating a sense of ethics. This shift indicates that premium products are becoming less about a luxury aesthetic, and more about a powerful ethos.
