Poll: Children Driving Eco-Friendly Measures in American Homes

More Americans are "going green"--and parents say it is because of their kids.

Results from a new poll show that as more American households "go green," it is often the younger members of the family who are pushing the changes.

The poll was conducted by One Poll on behalf of Avocado Mattress. It surveyed 2,000 Americans and found that 7 in 10 consider their home to be "eco-friendly." Additionally, 76 percent of parents say their child is the one who advocates for environmentally-friendly changes.
