Our world is rapidly changing, from hunter-gathering to farming to capitalism, economic globalization, and political difficulty. It is vital to consume our scarce resources in a sustainable manner since people have always been consumers rather than replenishes of the earth''s natural resources. By definition, sustainability is known as the capability of current genesis to fulfill their requirements without jeopardizing the prerequisite of generations of the future ability to fulfill their own. Expressing in other words, it providethe ability of humans to live in harmony with the ecosystem on our planet. Environment sustainability as a conspicuous element of sustainability approaches towards steering definite resources to curb down the transforming resource as well as curtail down generated wastage by providingenvironmental and naturally generatedsources a protection sheet. These recent catastrophic circumstances have been the cause for the authors to rethink their understanding of their concept of sustainability. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on human sustainabilitythrough “triple bottom line (TBL)”approach consisting of pliers like “economic, social, and environmental”. The research on COVID-19 and its long-term consequences is notably fragmented, owing to a growing interest among academics in acknowledging to the pandemic''s immediate call for action implementing a concept known as the triple bottom line strategy is one way to achieve these future sustainable developmental goals.

The Study stands on an assumption that growing fashion consciousness leads towards a
general change oriented behavior and so escort towards an intense consumption pattern. To
fulfill that huge demand of all kinds, massive industrialization takes place, which is evidently
a threat to the environment. Study ascertains the fashion consciousness of only the most
neglected segment of the market to establish that people are getting fashion conscious to a
threatening level. This study identifies the fashion information sources, shopping preferences
and in particular, measures the fashion consciousness of the underappreciated segment as
mature female consumers in Pakistan. A comprehensive questionnaire is exposed to the
females aging 45 to onwards who were explained with every question in order to ensure the
validity of the instrument. It is found that mature women are fashion conscious but not as
much as they share information of fashion. Mature women are more concerned about comfort
than style and more concerned about style than brand name, which is a clear evidence of lack
of advertisement and focus of businesses on this wealthy and independent segment. Even then,
they are fashion conscious and acquire fashion information through catalogues, store display,
fashion shows, asking family members, and social gatherings. This amplifying fashion
consciousness leads to a change oriented behavior in general. People seek change in
everything around (even before it expiries) which will obviously generate innovative demands
and in result, industrialization will be at its peak; an obvious threat to the environment.

In the past decades, tourism's impact on economics, social, culture, and society has increased. The concept of alternative tourism, such as nature-based travel, green travel, responsible travel, soft tourism, cultural tourism, adventure travel, and ecotourism, is growing very excessively as compared to ordinary tourism. The current study aims to determine the research direction on ecotourism behavior in the year 2015 to 2019. The 56 studies are included in the review from the Scopus database and following the PRISMA statement 2015. Classification of literature is divided into four significant categories after reviewing the literature and setting the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The most frequent theories also discussed, and theory of planned behavior used by the many researchers related to the ecotourism behavior. The findings showed that ecotourism behavior development research is focused on environmental protection. The behavioral development process is needed an ecotourism intention creating process. There is need to make efforts in multidisciplinary research.
