I love to read about the business trends that will be affecting the landscape of our culture in the next year. Trendwatchers, a business zine that predicts the coming trends marks eco-cycology as a big trend in the year 2012.
What is eco-cology? If you have never heard of this concept, let me give you a wonderful example. The company name is Nike, and their green and sustainable program to recycle old sneakers into playgrounds, tennis courts, and running tracks is one of the best examples of eco-cycology around.
What if you had a metal hose and wanted to use it again? Wouldn't there be a thousand ways to do so? Or even simple ways-such as taking that old metal hose to a recycling center near you. Our culture is catching up with our values- and that's cool!
