Apr. 21 /CSRwire/ - BURLINGAME, Calif. - April 21, 2009 - As registration for the Sustainable Brands Conference in Monterey Calif. on May 31 – June 3 continues to rise; Sustainable Life Media today announced a partnership with J.D. Power & Associates and EarthSense to provide valuable free research on consumer attitudes toward sustainability issues for all attendees.

The J.D. Power & Associates research analyzed over two million blog posts over the last 36 months to find out how consumer perception about sustainability has shifted amid economic uncertainly. The research showed acceleration in discussions on sustainability in the blogosphere.

The EarthSense research is part of Eco-Insights, the largest study of consumer attitudes and behaviors toward the environment and sustainability for over 80 different products. SB '09 attendees will be among the first to receive the quantitative analysis of the data and a peek into how the consumer's green mindset is changing.

"Despite the challenging economic climate, we are gearing up for our strongest Sustainable Brands Conference yet. The faculty joining the conference is a dynamic mix of big brands and innovative institutions like NASA and the San Diego Zoo. All are lining up in support of our belief in sustainability as a primary path to building revenue and brand value," said KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, CEO of Sustainable Life Media. "The research partnerships with J.D. Power and Associates and EarthSense add even more value to the conference and we expect to see noticeable growth in overall participation this year from all sectors.

Adidas, REI, Cabot Creamery, Coca-Cola, Harrah's, Hewlett-Packard, New Balance, Kraft, Office Depot, Petrobras, Saucony, Quaker Oats, Williams Sonoma, and many others, are among the brands already committed to participate in SB'09.
