The New Rules of Green Marketing: Strategies, Tools, and Inspiration for Sustainable Branding. By Jacquelyn Ottman. Green products have been around since the 1970s, but it’s only in recent years that they’ve become ubiquitous. This book takes the best of Ottman’s previous groundbreaking work into the 21st century. Her “new rules” relegate “green guilt” approaches to the recycling bin, break green products out of their niche, and ultimately do a far better job of advancing the triple bottom line of people, profits, and planet. An emphasis on primary benefits is critical to winning over mainstream consumers. As Kindle | More… | Jacquelyn Ottman EcoSpeakers Info >>
