Sustainability is now a mainstream issue. Most consumers are acutely aware of its extent and impact, ranking environmental concerns as a high priority. Today's consumers are acting on their values and consider ethical shopping as a way to support their commitments, evaluating the environmental impact of a product when making purchasing decisions.
