It is known that more and more people think about our planet when shopping. Ecological packaging is the basis. A market research in Poland
conducted by the Moja Gazetka application shows that almost 62% of Poles choose ecologically packed products. However, only 26.5% refrain from purchasing the product when they see the plastic packaging. The results are saved by respondents from the age group 65+, so almost 60% buy their own packaging for products by weight and limit the purchase of previously packed products.
42.9% of respondents are willing to pay more for ecological packaging. However, it must be remembered that not all “ecological packaging” is recycled later. Greenwashing is more common than we think.
What shocked me and made me happy was the fact that as many as 96.3% of respondents used their own shopping bags! However, only half of that number use reusable pouches by weight. I hope this will change. More and more stores offer ecological packaging, e.g. a fruit bag, instead of traditional skidding.
The respondents pay attention and are aware of the limited recycling possibilities. Almost 82% of respondents believe that the quantity and availability of returnable packaging should be much greater than it is now. Almost all respondents (98.2%) agree on one thing – bottle return machines should be more common.
Voices regarding advertising magazines are also happy. Such bags come out practically once a week in every store. Therefore, it is not surprising that the number of respondents (91.1%) responsible for reducing the circulation is not surprising. 96% of respondents responded to the idea of printing plastic bags on recycled paper.
More and more people (49%) choose and notice the difference between organic, bio and fairtrade food, and a simple cheap mass meal. The difference is not only in the quality of the product, but also in awareness. Whether the product and packaging have been ethically produced or not. Slowly people are starting to buy products such as fruit, vegetables or eggs in bazaars where they are more aware of buying. It is still the most popular shopping destination in small towns.
2,563 people were surveyed, including 80% women and 20% men of all ages. The respondents come from different cities of different sizes.
