2009-The 2nd Annual Greendex’ survey by National Geographic released. Greendex, a worldwide environmental tracking survey to measure consumer behaviors that have an impact on the environment. GlobeScan found an increase in environmentally friendly behavior in 13 of the 14 countries surveyed.
Overall the scores were good news, whether or not it was due to the economy, who really knows. Economic conditions have definitely limited consumption, however people are becoming more aware of environmental concerns and issues. Consumers are being alerted about things they can do easily to save money and the environment.
