We all need to do some homework, and try and make some kind of effort to be more sustainable in the least. Going green is expensive, and some products just maybe hype, but that's why we all need to do our own research into what greener ways of living will best fit our lifestyle. We all don't need to turn into Ed Begley, but some effort on everyone's part would be a good start.

I used to buy a lot more green products than I do now. I stopped buying so much partly based on cost (hey, I have a budget to maintain), and partly because many of the greener products simply didn't work nearly as well. If a product truly is greener, doesn't cost all that much more than the conventional one, and does the job intended, then I will buy it. But, if it doesn't work, then it truly is not only a waste of money, but also a waste of resources, and therefore, is no longer all that "green."

Being of a female mind and also logical I would have to say that products need to improve and greed needs to stop for any progress to be made.

Being of male mind and living in logic, it is dificult to sort through what is marketing for a buck and what is genuinely a product that will improve the envirnment. I'm not sure about the whole green movement but at the same time I am sure that don't need to continue to plunder the planet for our pleasure.

I have yet to use a eco friendly product and found its claim to be true.

Still a long way to go but at least everyone is aware now.

Admittedly I only read about half before commenting. Even though Men & women are divided in rationalizing our purchases, we all know, we can't keep consuming that which invokes making all the stuff we like around us. New purchases need to be thoughtful in price and design to compete in todays green market. Being a green vendor, I do want to profit but not by manipulation but with education and innovation.
Thanks for listening,

Cost is definitely a factor when you don't have much income. I'll definitely pick the cheaper products. Most people can't afford green!

Cost simply cannot be the only factor when considering purchases. Every chance we have to make a difference, no matter how small, counts in the big picture. Every decision we make has an effect, even if only ripples in a pond. But by banding together and sharing decisions with others, we have the capacity to effect others' choices and decisions. We have to realize that we are not in this alone.
