Yes, two days ago, Pantone announced that 2017’s colour of the year is going to reflect the beautiful green colours of spring. With everything going on in the world right now, the environment is of extreme importance.
Many times, we forget to do even the simplest things to help the environment, like recycle. The Pantone Color Institute says, “…the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” With all the clothing we buy, sometimes we forget to be eco-friendly and buy from ethical and sustainable brands.
Completely opposite from this year’s Serenity and Rose Quartz, Greenery is an energetic and fresh colour. I’m curious to see how Instagram and Tumblr influencers use this colour in their pictures since their pictures now reflect the minimalistic side of 2016’s colours.
Personally, I never loved the colour green very much, but Greenery being 2017’s colour of the year, maybe I’ll step out of my comfort zone and try it out! The holidays are coming up so soon! Will you gift your friends and family something Greenery coloured or will you try it out yourself?
