Environmental consumerism is on the rise in the U.S. and around the globe according to a recent study by Havas PR: Because It Matters. The report was reviewed in a recent article by EnvironmentalLeader.com and recaps the study that analyzed the thoughts and habits of some 30,000 consumers from 20 countries. Here are a few of the highlights from the study:
- 21% of American consumers often or always bought one brand over another in the past year because it’s more responsible.
- Fifty-four percent of Americans say they would like to buy brands that let them support well-being and sustainability in the coming year.
- Globally, 34 percent of consumers often or always bought one brand over another for reasons of conscience in the past and 67 percent would like to do so in the future.
- Least effort rules. (Consumers like the idea of being conscientious but are most likely to engage in conscientious behavior that requires little or no additional cost or effort from them.)
