Survey: Some ‘go green’ only to impress others
Today is Earth Day, and groups around the world are holding events to help raise awareness about environmental concerns.
But a new survey suggests some people may be “going green” only to impress others.
Among people who believe it’s important for others to perceive them as being “green,” 24 percent also admit they’ve purchased a green product just to show other people they’re environmentally conscious.
And 20 percent admit they’ve concealed recyclable trash with their regular garbage so others won’t know they didn’t separate the recyclables.
