The percentage of shoppers interested in purchasing natural, sustainably-sourced products has been steadily rising in recent years. However, high prices on more sustainable brands are a hindrance to many consumers when making a purchase decision.

Target said the items in its Everspring line are priced about 20 percent lower than comparable products from brands such as Mrs. Meyers and Seventh Generation.
