Why are we seeing more green alternetives than before?
It’s not a fast change but it’s surley happening. I see it my self everyday. What’s happening is not that the big manufactores CEO’s suddenly have this contious inlightment about the ongoing damage their products cause to earth.
What is really hapening is that they begin to understand that green consuming is more than just a trend, that people are actually willing to not only pay more but to take more time to find the green alternatives to the products they need.
So what’s the problem?
Marketing is the problem.
Since the defention of “Green Products” is not always on the spot and the average consumer is quit daseled about what are real green alternatives and what aren’t, big companies (being big companies) are sometimes trying to take advange of the situation.
So for example you will see more products in green colour packagaing, or marked “eco-friendly” or “Green” to give earth friendly consumers the feeling they are buying the green alternatives.
How to recognize real green alternatives?
Obviously it depends on the specific type of product you’re buying. But generally, when buying a new product, there are a few guidelines you can stick too:
- Look for biodegradeable
Biodegradeable products are made from natural materials that will naturally degrade in a few years without any need of human interfirng.
This materials include:
Wood, Bamboo, Glass, Cottun, Ceramic, Leafes, Silicone
- Look for long lasting and not disposeable
Products that last longer do more justice with our environment as you buy them once and they last a couple of years. This means buying products with high quality over one time use products.
