Green Clutter or Social Awareness

Most US consumers think of themselves as environmentally friendly, according to an Environmental Leader article citing BBMG’s “Conscious Consumer Report.”

In addition to being eco-friendly, nearly nine in 10 US respondents self-identified themselves either as “conscious consumers” or “socially responsible.”

That contrasts with respondents who self-identified themselves as “green.” About two-thirds of respondents in the BBMG study said that the term described them “well,” and 18% said it described them “very well.”

“In a world of green clutter, conscious consumers expect companies to do more than make eco-friendly claims,” said Raphael Bemporad, partner at BBMG. “They demand transparency and accountability across every level of business practice.”
