Study Shows the Large Impact That Consumers' Environmental Concerns Have on the Packaged Beverage Industry

A recent BeveragePulse.com study by Concept Catalysts and iModerate Research Technologies found that 94% of Americans are concerned about the long-term effects that their packaged beverage purchases and consumption have on the environment. The free study also shows that recycling was cited frequently (45%) as the most important environmental concern for packaged beverages. Health concerns and economic issues also contribute to recent category declines in packaged beverage purchases.

This BeveragePulse.com report "Environmental Concerns: The impact on beverage and package decisions" contains these and many other findings such as:

Environmental concerns are driving down the consumption of bottled water
Although 56% of consumers cite recycling as a critical issue, many are not recycling at work or away from home
Concern for environmental issues among consumers has heightened as a result of the Gulf oil spill
Half of the respondents are confused about the meaning of sustainability, some citing it as a negative environmental attribute

The research utilized a mixed methods approach, combining quantitative and qualitative methods to explore what drives consumers' packaged beverage purchasers. The study sampled over 500 respondents giving a margin of error of +/-4.29 at the 95% confidence level.

Bob Falkenberg, founder of BeveragePulse.com and president of Concept Catalyst says, "Our research shows that consumers think about the environment when they are making beverage purchases; specifically, the findings indicate that consumers relate positively to packages that are easy to recycle. Beverage companies should start a full court press on recycling."

Other reports for purchase address further pertinent issues for the packaged beverage industry and are published regularly.
