There is no denying the fact that environmental issues are becoming more important to consumers. Thanks to the rise of social media, for example, many people are now aware of the dangers associated with plastic pollution and other forms of pollution. In addition to this information being available online and through traditional media channels such as TV and radio broadcasts, it has also become a hot topic among celebrities who use their platforms on social media sites like Twitter and Instagram to call out companies that don’t take these matters seriously enough. The net result? Consumers are becoming increasingly aware about the impact their purchases have on the environment; they’re also more likely than ever before to choose sustainable options over less environmentally-friendly ones
Often seen as a niche topic, environmentalism has become mainstream with recent U.N. Climate Change Conference and the Paris Agreement, signed by more than 170 countries.
Often seen as a niche topic, environmentalism has become mainstream with recent U.N. Climate Change Conference and the Paris Agreement, signed by more than 170 countries. The Paris Agreement is an international treaty designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by 2100 (1). It also focuses on adapting to climate change impacts (2).
The signing of this agreement shows that there is growing awareness among consumers of their role in contributing towards environmental sustainability through their consumer choices.
As such, “green” has entered our daily vocabulary and is no longer just the domain of environmentalists and activists; it has become part of pop culture.

We’re seeing eco-friendly options everywhere including fashion catwalks, TV shows and film productions.
You’ve probably noticed that eco-fashion is everywhere. It’s not just a fad, but a growing trend in the fashion industry.
It seems like every week there is some new development or announcement related to eco-friendly clothing and accessories. In this article we’ll take a look at how the green movement has impacted fashion on both the runway and behind the scenes with designers and models alike as well as some examples of how environmentalism is influencing other industries such as film production (think Avatar).
Consumers are becoming more conscious about the impact their purchases have on the environment
As you’re probably aware, consumerism is the new environmentalism. Consumers are becoming more conscious about the impact their purchases have on the environment and are looking for products that are better for their health, the economy and their communities. This can be seen in many ways:
- More people are buying local produce (instead of imported) because it reduces emissions from transportation
- More people are buying organic foods because they don’t contain pesticides or GMOs which can harm biodiversity in our soil and water systems
- More people want to buy clothing made from natural materials like cotton instead of synthetic fabrics such as polyester
Green has become the new black. Consumers are becoming more conscious about their impact on the environment and are looking for more eco-friendly options. Brands are responding by offering products that are environmentally friendly and sustainable. The trend is evident everywhere from catwalks to TV shows and films; this is just the beginning of a new era where green will be mainstreamed into our lives!
