Going Green, Going Feminine: How Green Appeal Influences Products Targeting Consumers of Different Genders

Consumers associate green (vs. non-green) products more with femininity, consider people consuming green (vs. non-green) products as more feminine, and believe that a feminine (vs. masculine) friend would favor a green gift more. Moreover, consumers with well-developed/ impoverished product knowledge evaluate female/male products with (vs. without) green add-ons more favorably.
