Eco-Filling is about a new way of living in a city that keeps getting more crowded, while still being as eco-friendly as possible. Whether this means we will go up or down to create more space to live and work, we’ll make it so that not only we benefit from it, but nature too. The space we have is going to be used to its fullest extent, but this time in a green way. (own trend)

The Fruithaven is a club in Rotterdam that is completely sustainable. All the leftovers will be thrown into a bio fermenter that turns the food into energy.

Why would you throw something that might still be useful? That is the question around Capacity Capture. Capacity Capture is a trend based on the principle of finding more efficient and eco-friendly ways to process our resources to find a good balance between all the products we throw away and the products we actually reuse. From food to oil, from oil to energy, everything has to be used to its fullest extent. (Trendwatching, 2016)
