Environmental concerns are growing stronger as time passes by. The need of ecofriendly processes and products is a reality that people has become aware of.
According to findings of SurveyMonkey, 1 in 3 consumers preferred ecofriendly options in 2018 and 5% of the people they surveyed said their next vehicle will be a hybrid or electric one. And when they asked:
“How likely are you to buy a product that is better for the environment than another product that is slightly cheaper?”
35% of survey respondents said they would be entirely willing to spend more money on ecofriendly products (and 56% answered that they would be at least moderately willing).
This was in 2015. 4 years have passed, and this awareness has grown.
In China, the E-Commerce retailer JD, reported that the volume of ecofriendly goods sold grew in 71%.
By 2016, Nielsen found out that 66% of consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable goods.

· They like the idea of the manufacturer being involved in fair trade practices (social responsability).
