This past weekend, communities all over the world celebrated Earth Day, a single day during which we try to make amends for our over consumption, pollution, and general disregard for the air we breathe and water we drink. But I digress…
Earth Day has been around for 42 years, and more people now celebrate this eco-friendly holiday than ever before. But does that mean we’re actually taking action to protect the environment? To answer that question, SodaHead polled its users to find out what they think about the environment, recycling, organic products and hybrid cars. Overall, 85 percent of respondents said being “eco-friendly” is very important or moderately important. However, only 14 percent think the planet is improving, as 86 percent feel the planet has gotten worse or stayed the same.
