These various environmental movements have become known as environmentalism” (Truell, Allen “Green Marketing”). There have been different movements in history that had led up to how people react and what they know today. Will not go into them but environmentalism is important to understand. The Merriam-Webster’s definition of environmentalism is “a theory that views environment rather than heredity as the important factor in the development and especially the cultural and intellectual development of an individual or group”(DIC). These groups that the definition mentions are important because they are the consumer, and are getting bigger according to many of the sources in this paper.
The fast inventory turnover, marketer finance, low operational prices, and self service facilities enabled Costco to control at a considerably lower profit margin and to expire those savings to members through lower costs and better quality product. By charging members a paid fee, that supplemented overall profitableness, it provided shareholders with an appropriate
Green prisons weren’t made just for prison purpose to be more efferent but also because there was a concern internationally how our environment has been falling apart slowly. There are number of direct and indirect benefits for going green. First benefit would be to start recycling and start growing organic food in the prison and used for eating and save money.

Green shopping is when we go green and when consumers buy environmentally safe things . Green shopping should be having fair trade, getting organic food and getting renewable and sustainable energy. I reason with this is because fair trade says how it 's made with respect, equity and giving the enough amount of money to the worker to feed their family. Buying organic foods is better than genetically modified foods because organic foods have strict rules and inspection about growing expectations. Finding renewable and sustainable energy should be effective to our community because renewable energy is environmentally safe energy and doesn’t poison us by getting close to
Competitive advantage of a firm is the edge that it has over its competitors (Altharti 2012).It is important to state that competitive advantage (CA) cannot be achieved without a business strategy or business model. It is the business strategy, which is the management game plan for creating value for stakeholders and earning a reasonable return on investment that gives a company a competitive advantage over rivals in terms of higher financial performance on revenue, return on investment etc. The author accepts that Porter’s generic strategy and value chain are important tools in understanding the competitive strategies being deployed by rivals in any industry analysis. An understanding of the generic strategies such as the broad low cost provider, broad differentiation strategy, and narrow focus strategies on cost and differentiation being deployed by competitors can provide opportunities for existing and potential competitors by trying to achieve a lower cost or better differentiation by rivals.

Additionally, efficient distribution channels, optimal outsourcing and vertical integration, bargaining power to negotiate the lowest price for production inputs as well as high buying capacity all participate in making cost leadership a go-to strategy for high return on investment and profitability. The possible downsides of this strategy can vary from low workers remunerations to exploitation of unskilled workers. The advantages of cost leadership are often threaten by external business environment threats such as higher minimum wages laws. Examples of successful cost leadership organisations: WAL-MART.INC (ASDA), Costco, MCDONALD 'S, IKEA. Cost advantages stem from the fact that a company can quickly reap higher profit margins despite selling products or services at competitors price due to lower production costs.
To do this it needs to have a competitive advantage over its its rivals. A competitive advantage is something a company does better than its rivals that gives it an advantage over its rival. Porter (1988) states that a firm performs many activities that can contribute to a firms relative cost position and create a basis for differentiation which can create a cost advantage that gives a firm a competitive advantage over its competitors. A company’s competitive advantage and competitive strategy are both interrelated. Competitive strategy is defined by Porter (1980) as a broad formula for how a business is going to compete, what its goals should be, and what policies will be needed to carry out those goals.
I. Introduction One of the trends in the food industry nowadays is organic food. Organic food, as advertised by several people, is “chemical-free”.
