What Makes Green Products Appealing to Investors and Consumers
There is an increasing demand among conumers for "eco-friendly" and "green" products. Consequently, many new companies are becoming interested in green products to satisfy the consumer demand. Investors are taking this as an opportunity to earn money on up-and-coming companies that specialize in this industry.
The consumer interest in these products comes from the "feel-good" factor. When consumers buy eco-friendly products, they feel that they are helping the planet. This eco-friendly zeitgeist can be comparable to the Cold War era. Today, there is a fear that humans have created an unsustainable need for material goods. These goods are taking away valuable resources, and harming the planet. This has created a mass anxiety in the populous. Therefore, consumers are buying green products to feel as though they are helping to restore and heal the planet.
