A new year, a new color—and as no color represents renewal more than green, Pantone’s color of 2017 is Greenery. A color that abounds in nature, green is an common color in food. Usually green means healthy, and sometimes, cleansing—it calls to mind vegetables, gardens, matcha. May this rejuvenating color inspire a hopeful 2017.
