This is awful news! Apparently, the trend towards buying environmentally friendly products is coming to an end! And here are some facts that prove it:
–Bottled water sales "rallied nationally last quarter as sales rose 4%." Water filtration device sales were down.
–The entire "green" cleaning products segment is on the decline.
–Hybrid car sales are down 10% in a market up 10%
–In the past two years, more consumers than ever tell pollsters they think that green products are too expensive, don't work well, and are "not even as better for the environment in the first place."
Don’t stop buying green! We know the economy is tough right now, so if you can’t afford the more expensive green products, at least make sure you’re doing every thing you can to recycle and re-use what you can!
