“Green” is the buzzword today. Each day someone or the other comes up with a new green concept. I would like to ask you: Do you really know how your personal choices are adding up? How well are people around the globe adopting behaviors that can make the world a sustainable place?

The second annual Greendex survey researched 17,000 adults online in 17 countries to determine consumer attitudes and their behavior.

Consumers in India, Brazil and China scored the highest for a second year in a row, for their green behavior. Americans scored the lowest.
