For some women, the pressure to be environmentally conscious even outweighs the pressure to have a great relationship, or have children who are successful in school or extracurricular activities. Along with feeling the pressure, women also feel it’s trendy to be environmentally conscious. Fifty-one percent of respondents said “green is the new black.” And when they do commit a green faux pas, throwing recyclables into the regular trash container is when they feel the most judgment.
I don't think being green should be so "extreme". (Please pardon that rhyme.) I buy organic vegetables and fruits only and my house is filled with Clorox Green Works products because they are green but also well priced and affordable. I don't feel pressure to spend a lot of money to be green so when I find an affordable solution, I'm all for it.
Did you know that in a recent survey from the Clorox company, ninety-three percent of women agree that being environmentally friendly should be accessible to everyone. Most women say affordability makes green product purchases more accessible (63%) than any other factor. That's a huge number of women actually agreeing on something!
What about you? Do you feel pressure about being green? Well one of my readers will win a Clorox Green Works gift basket which is an affordable solution!
