    The environmental concerns in the current century is not only limited to the polluting effect of the fossil fuel consumption but also the recycling challenges of waste turns to be a substantial challenges of the industry. Recycling of colored discarded materials is very difficult because of the problems in relation to the dissociation of diverse chemical compounds present in the colorant agents. Single or double component materials which could create various colors by geometrical changes can be a great solution to the mentioned limitations. Metasurfaces’ and metamaterials’ structural color therefore draws attention as they enable generation of vivid colors only by geometrical arrangement of metals which not only ease the recycling but at the same time enhance the mechanical stability of the colors. In this review, the progress in the field of plasmonic metasurface- and metamaterial-based structural colors is reviewed.
