#Business #Biodiversity Update

#Business #Biodiversity Update | Conservation, Ecology, Environment and Green News | Scoop.it

Brands the world over have started offering consumers incentives to pick green. In these tight times, consumers are reluctant to pay premiums to be green. But a new trend shows they won’t have to: quite the opposite. Brands are teasing green behaviour from consumers with the offer of rewards. At the 2011 V Festival, Coca-Cola got happy campers to bring 66,000 PET bottles to recycle bins by offering T-shirts and waterproofs at ‘Swap for Swag’ stalls.

This throwaway mentality is a relatively recent phenomenon. Just a generation ago, we packaged our products in reusable or recyclable materials – glass, metals, and paper, and designed products that would last. Today, our landfills and beaches are awash in plastic packaging, and expendable products that have no value at the end of their short lifecycle."
