With widespread COVID-19 vaccination underway, public spaces are slowly reopening. As we embark on the next normal, what does the intersection of health, safety and sustainability look like in shared spaces such as schools and recreation destinations? How are brands and institutions safely transforming communal experiences while also promoting sustainable behavior?

Key takeaways:

● How can you be clean and green?

● Creative ways to enhance consumer experiences with eco-friendly solutions
