Implications - As contemporary society continues its movement towards Green transportation alternatives, the amount of consumers who are interested and passionate about these options becomes more viable. A company can capitalize on this burgeoning market by creating products, advertising and marketing directly targeted at this subculture. Because it is so early in the movement, they can establish a lengthy connection with these consumers by being the first company to strike.
