People deciding to be more sustainable can be as simple as a New Year's resolution, it may be in response to a global environmental issue, or something more unique to the individual that has meant they want to contribute towards a better planet. Whatever the reason, the trend towards sustainable lifestyles cannot be ignored.

The global push for sustainability echoes in customer buying decisions, with a striking 85% adopting at least one lifestyle change to be more sustainable in the past two years. Brands that align with these values not only contribute to environmental factors but also establish a stronger connection with their customer base as 34% of customers actively seek brands with sustainable credentials.

Understanding the sustainability of a product can be a complex matter that involves several factors. While recycling is often the first thing that comes to mind when we think of sustainability, it's not the only thing to consider. A truly sustainable product takes into account the entire lifecycle of the product, from the environmental impact of its production to the ethical considerations of the ingredients used.

By taking a holistic approach to sustainability and stocking products that cover at least one sustainability factor, you can help shoppers make more environmentally conscious choices that benefit both the planet and society as a whole.
