Consumers demand for eco products has become more prevalent, especially with the emergence of the new fad of not using plastic disposable, according to MentalFloss. As entire cities start to ban things like plastic straws, it’s important to keep up with eco-conscious consumers.
Some companies that are taking the initiative to reduce their carbon footprint include Starbucks, which designed a new cold drinks lid so it wouldn’t have to use straws. They are also opening up a factory to make paper straws.
There are more innovations and products to appeal to the eco-conscious consumer than ever before, and this trend will only continue to be driving force.
