  • 46. Excerpts From Sustainability Survey
    • 84% of consumers currently purchase at least some green products.
    • Only 1% of consumers who purchased green abandoned the category.
    • A high percentage of green consumers expect to convert to green products in new categories
    • Price is the main reason non-green consumers have not purchased green
    • Almost 2/3 of consumers have changed their green purchase behavior in response to the recession.
    • Most of these consumers have switched to less expensive green products(41%) or simply reduced the overall amount of green products that they use (19%).
    • However, 16% of consumers have actually increased their use of green products.
    • Key findings from Grail Research's "The Green Revolution" report
