Thinking Green Easier than Living Green

April 22, 2015 1:45 am

Americans agree: the environment matters. But the conversation, they say, isn’t going far enough.

According to a recent Harris Poll, 44 percent of Americans are concerned about the planet we are leaving behind for future generations. Furthermore, over half of Americans (55 percent) feel the severity of the past winter calls global climate change into question.

The Poll found that while Americans are making an effort to be more environmentally conscious, many remain divided on the ease or difficulty of achieving a green lifestyle.

Attitudes toward organic products, arguably one of the simpler ways to go green, remain divided as well. One majority believes organic foods are healthier in comparison to non-organic, but otherwise similar, products. Another majority believes labeling food or other products as “organic” is an excuse to raise prices. A third majority does not believe organic foods taste better or fresher than non-organic products.
