As Covid-19 vaccinations roll out all over the globe, the world can finally press the “resume” on certain regular activities. Restaurants and bars are welcoming back their old crowds, people are going back to their office buildings, and countries are considering reopening their borders. We can easily recall the days when we were locked inside and buried by irritation awaiting the dark days fade awayto fade away and yet, we forgot that amid the global pandemic and country-wide quarantines, aquatic life has returned to the canals of Venice, giant pandas have been found to be wandering around the highways in Sichuan and the air quality has drastically improved in multiple cities.
In the past year, we saw how much life can change in the blink of an eye, we also saw how much our daily activities and consumer behaviors have overwhelmed the planet. On the first-year anniversary of the pandemic and the 52nd Earth Day, we are once again bringing up sustainability, for it is now a non-negotiable topic which is affecting every one of us. More and more brands are joining to address this issue. Consumers, on the other hand, are noticing the increasing presence of eco-friendly brands, as well as ways to adopt a new lifestyle.
