Sustainability in E-commerce: New Trends for 2022

Sustainability in e-commerce new trends for 2022
The impact of the e-commerce industry on planet Earth and the environment is a much-discussed topic among business owners and retail experts. As consumers become more aware of their individual carbon footprint, they are putting pressure on brands to be more sustainable.
