In total, the report found that half of all shoppers are willing to pay a premium for green items.

The “Green” Scene is part two of a series of mini reports from Miller Zell’s larger report, “Gone in 2.3 Seconds: Capturing Shoppers with Effective In-Store Triggers.”

Grocery stores are most likely to benefit from these trends, as the report found that 79 percent of shoppers are more likely to pay a premium for green items in supermarkets.
