Is There Room For Social Stimuli in Green Ads?: an Investigation of the Use of Human Face in Green Advertisements

This paper explores the effectiveness of human face (a social cue) used along with green message (an informational cue) in green advertisements. We find that while green ads are generally preferred over non-green ads, it is less preferred when a face (vs. no face) is present.
