“Not only are consumers interested in green products and companies, our survey shows that nearly half of them will to pay at least five percent more for them,” said Stuart Larkins, senior vice president of search at DoubleClick Performics. “With so many consumers online researching and purchasing products, retailers should include relevant environmentally-conscious information throughout their paid and natural search campaigns, affiliate promotions, display ads, and e-mail.”

  1. The paradigm is shifting, more people are beginning to understand that it is up to them to use self-sustaining and Eco friendly products and change their old habits, rather than wait for corporations to change their business practices. Once the people stop purchasing wasteful products, corporations will start selling products that promote better health for the earth and its inhabitants.

    We each must do our part if we wish to see change, no matter how small it may seem to us at first.

  2.
