Don’T Put All Your Green Eggs in One Basket: Examining Self-Monitoring and Environmentally Friendly Sub-Branding Strategy

To find a sub-branding strategy that promotes eco-friendly images for brands, we examine two sub-branding strategies, and show that when green products are dispersed across several sub-brands (versus concentrated within one sub-brand), people make inferences that the overall parent brand is eco-friendly. Results also vary by the level of self-monitoring.
