Price Based Evaluation of Eco-Friendly Products: the Mediating Role of Perceived Investment By the Firm

This paper proposes and tests a novel lay theory that impacts the evaluation of eco-friendly products. Using 5 studies, we show that consumers perceive higher-priced green products to be eco-friendlier, and this effect is mediated by the perceived investment of the firm in the manufacturing and development of the products.
