As consumers get more sensitive on environment protection, their purchasing behavior develop on that direction as well as. Under these circumstances, a concept called “green marketing” is widely discussed in both academic and industrial circles. Green marketing is basically the promotion of environmentally safe and beneficial products; it also includes the development of ecologically safer products, recyclable packaging, green promotion activities and green labels. Moreover, it’s claimed that there is a correlation between green marketing and good corporate recognition.
