52% Would Pay More for Environmentally Friendly Packaging

New research by Aquapak with UK consumers reveals that over half (52%) would be willing to pay more for environmentally friendly packaging when purchasing clothing and accessories.


This encouraging discovery shows consumers’ dedication to switching to more environmentally friendly packaging.


These were the findings of those who were willing to pay extra for their goods to be sustainably packaged:

  • One third said they would pay an extra 1% to 4%
  • Almost two fifths (39%) said they would pay a 5% premium
  • 8% said they would pay 6% to 9% more
  • 15% said they would be willing to pay between 10% and 20% more
