The evolution of the third stage is just a response to the anomalies occurring in the second stage. With the implementation of advanced technology, stricter state enforcement on deceptive claims, govt. regulations and incentives and closer scrutiny from various environmental organizations and media many green products have regained confidence in the 2000’s (Gurau and Ranchhod, 2005; Ottoman, 2007).

Green consumerism is often discussed as a form of ‘pro-social’ consumer behavior (Wiener and Doesher, 1991).
