The New Sustainable Consumer
- And her search for truth
Most of the changes we’re seeing right now are actually major transformations into new lifestyle behaviours rather than shorter trends in the market. To keep track of or even participate in and influence these changes, brands need more than ever to create a strategic approach to what is happening
The decisions we make now have the power to rebuild and reshape brands long after the influence of the pandemic. One key action is to integrate sustainability within all business functions and find new opportunities to create value for the consumer, employees, and investors.
The New Sustainable Consumer report is an exploratory foresight report and was published in Scandinavian MIND issue 1.
Our purpose with understanding the New Sustainable Consumer is to create a better understanding for why and how consumers do or do not incorporate sustainability issues into their consumption pattern

The Ghost Net Project was part of a three season collaboration with Tretorn and Naturkompaniet in Sweden. We took a stand in our mutual love of the outdoors and shared passion for responsible manufacturing and retailing. We teamed up to create a three season project of responsible design and innovation and launched three iconic projects. The Left Over Project, The Ghost Net Project, The Bioplant jacket.
The idea was based on the insight that 650 000 tonnes of fishing nets are floating around in our oceans. Fishing nets are made out of high quality nylon which decay slowly, risking to wipe out entire eco system. We said -
What if we could find our “non natural” resources in a “semi natural way” in nature?
We created a limited edition line of rainwear that was made from collected fishing nets and ocean waste. It had a new design, new way of on-product marketing, new style of hero, outdoor and e-com photography and was launched in selected Naturkompaniet stores and online.
