I'm kind of perturbed at the wording and narrowmindedness of the survey. This is one of those survey's that's clearly designed to elicite a specific statistic. In this case it's either that older generations don't care about the earth as much as younger generations, or that being eco-friendly is costly and time consuming.

I agree. I didn't like how some of the answer options were worded either. I'll be sure to pass this on.

Me too. A lot of the questions were not worded well. It made me seem not as eco friendly. However we recycle and use cloth diapers, plus use energy smart bulbs and other things. Plus I only have one child who is not even 4 months old. How do I teach her about being eco friendly now?
