Mindful shoppers, recycled products, vintage clothing, sustainable delivery, eco-light packaging and a greening of retail are coming of age in 2021. Retail appears to be adopting sustainability as a force for good. But will conscious consumers support these credentials by paying extra as we come out of a cataclysmic trading period as many brands are struggling to survive?
