In this report, we look at the growing importance of sustainability in retail, and offer a case study of a sustainably positioned retail business   Watermill Express. We also analyze the results of a survey of Watermill Express customers on shopping behavior and characteristics. Of all the plastic consumer items, plastic water bottles are one of the most problematic: According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, just 29.9% PET bottles and jars were recycled in 2015. A 2018 Mintel study similarly found that just 29% of those who buy bottled water realize it is bad for the environment. But consumer awareness is growing – younger consumers in particular place greater value on sustainable options.

But Bill Onderdonk, COO of high-end toy and game company KiwiCo, tells PYMNTS CEO Karen Webster that he thinks he has a solution. “If you want to spend quality time with your kids, they’re great projects for two or three people to do together,” he said. “So that’s sort of the other flip side of this crisis.
