ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the report commissioned by the Green Alliance from the Policy Studies Institute which suggested that the government should engage the eco-taxation bullet in a new Green Living Initiative in Great Britain. It prescribes an integrated approach, by government at all levels, linking policy measure with information provision to promote an overall Green Living brand. Part of the message of the report is that it is time to get on unnecessary consumption. The other side of it is incentives to reward consumers for making greener choices. The proposed new Products agency would single out wasteful items for punitive surcharge and getting better information across to help consumer make greener choices.
