Taiwan has emerged as a hub for eco-friendly products, emphasizing sustainability and environmental consciousness. This review explores the landscape of eco-friendly offerings in Taiwan, highlighting their impact, innovation, and contribution to global sustainability goals.

Eco-friendly Products and Innovations:
Taiwan's market is witnessing a surge in eco-conscious products across various sectors. Yu and Chen (2020) examined the proliferation of biodegradable packaging materials, showcasing Taiwan's strides in reducing plastic waste. Additionally, the Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI) (2021) showcased innovative textiles developed from recycled materials, promoting sustainable fashion.

Consumer Goods and Environmental Impact:
Eco-friendly consumer goods are increasingly gaining traction in Taiwan. Products like bamboo-based kitchenware and biodegradable personal care items are gaining popularity, as studied by Huang et al. (2019). These products offer viable alternatives, minimizing environmental impact while meeting consumer needs.

Government Initiatives and Regulations:
Taiwan's government has implemented policies encouraging the production and consumption of eco-friendly products. The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) has promoted sustainable alternatives through incentives and certification programs (EPA Taiwan, 2021). These initiatives propel Taiwan's commitment to sustainability in product manufacturing.

Challenges and Future Prospects:
Despite advancements, challenges persist, including scalability, cost-efficiency, and consumer awareness. However, Taiwan's active pursuit of sustainable innovations presents promising prospects. Efforts like the Green Trade Project Office (GTPO) (2021) highlight Taiwan's ambitions to foster a robust green industry.

Taiwan's eco-friendly products reflect a conscious effort to address environmental concerns while fostering innovation and sustainable consumption. The review underscores Taiwan's contributions to global sustainability and the potential for further advancements in eco-conscious manufacturing.

    Not only in Taiwan, but also in most countries, eco-friendly consumption habits and products are attracting attention. But in order to catch two rabbits, eco-friendly products and affordability, I think everyone still needs to work harder.
