As the new and recent demands of the public no longer only include extreme ecologically aware microworld, more sustainable retail products targeting the general population are pushing the niche market to the mainstream.

The core of the growth of the green retail market index is to include the material bamboo represented by sustainable development, and chameleons are sufficient to provide every type of environmental protection products that people may need.
