Polls show Americans support green schools and green companies

October 10th, 2011

Two surveys released last week show that Americans are still thinking green, even amid an economy that’s left them with less of it in their wallets.

The bad news: Only a tiny fraction of US residents (2 percent) own hybrid cars and vast numbers of people have not “engaged” in most of the green activities the survey asked about, like for example composting (only 17 percent do), walking or biking to work (15 percent), or even getting a low flow shower head (17 percent).
