7 Bold Eco Trends We’ll See by 2025

Eco Trends 2025

The future of sustainability is bright!

Here are seven bold predictions for some quirky, innovative eco-friendly advances we may see widespread by the year 2025.

Read on for a glimpse into a greener tomorrow…

1. Edible cutlery

Plastic forks and spoons could soon be a thing of the past. Companies are developing durable cutlery made from natural materials like pasta, rice, wheat bran, and sugar cane that can hold up to hot liquids but quickly dissolve after use. These eco-friendly utensils could prevent millions of throw-away plastics from polluting oceans and landfills.

2. Solar panel trees

Imagine strolling through a sunny park and finding relief from the heat under beautiful ‘trees’ covered in leaves made from solar panels. These futuristic trees already exist but will sprout up in cities everywhere providing clean power and shade by 2025.

3. Ocean plastic furniture

IKEA made a splash by releasing furniture made from recycled ocean plastics. As public concern over ocean pollution increases, expect more companies to follow suit. We may see entire IKEA collections crafted from salvaged plastic waste pulled from waterways.

4. Scooting around town

Zippy electric scooters are already taking over cities as an eco and space-saving transportation option. Soon fleets of autonomous scooters will allow seamless point-to-point travel and delivery with the tap of an app — reducing congestion and emissions.

5. Rooftop farm subsidies

Urban farms are sprouting up on empty rooftops, but many struggle financially. Governments could provide agriculture subsidies for these small producers growing food sustainably in cities, making local rooftop farms as viable as traditional farms.

6. Smart home energy use

Home appliances will become smarter about tapping into clean energy. Your EV may program itself to charge when solar power is abundant. The dishwasher may run a cycle when wind production is high. These smart innovations will help balance renewable supplies.

7. Virtual commutes

Virtual reality (VR) devices will provide immersive conferencing from home, reducing millions of commutes. Some companies may even provide employees VR headsets, saving money on office space while cutting air pollution in towns and cities.

The future is bright for forward-thinking eco solutions.

While only time will tell what trends become widespread, these predictions showcase that human innovation combined with care for our planet will likely a create a more sustainable world by 2025.
