    1. 1. Green Lifestyle Survey Results<br />April 2010<br />
    2. 2. Background <br />The Green Lifestyle Survey was issued during April of 2010 and completed by 1,050 people. <br />The focus of this survey was to “take the eco-pulse” of America and determine how much Americans are concerned about, and take action to protect the environment. Some of the questions address:<br /><ul><li>Are people truly as green as they say they are?
    3. 3. Do they engage in green activities on a regular basis?
    4. 4. Do they use environmental sensitivity as a means for evaluating an employer?
    5. 5. Does a person’s passion for the environment affect his or her personal relationships and who they date?
    6. 6. What would an American be willing to give up to avoid climate change and global warming altogether?</li></ul>The results are somewhat surprising… read ahead and find out.<br />Green Lifestyle Survey| The Green Workplace<br />2<br />
