The Mainstream Green study uncovers many of the obstacles deterring consumers from behaving in accord with their green intentions.

  • Where sustainability marketing has gone wrong
  • The major barriers to adopting sustainable behaviors
  • 12 ways to close the Green Gap
  • How to realize the opportunity in sustainability
  • This free event is open to the public, but seating is limited and RSVP REQUIRED. For those who are unable to participate in person, a live web feed of the dialogue will also be streamed providing ability to post comments and questions via twitter.

    Topics to be discussed will include:
    • Why going green is considered more feminine than masculine?
    • Why existing green marketing is either irrelevant or even alienating to most Americans?
    • Why 82% of Americans have good green intentions but only 16% are dedicated to fulfilling them?
    • How to close the “Green Gap” between what consumers think and what they do?
