Pangea Media, a leader in online quizzes and quiz technology, has released the results of its latest "Pangea Pulse," which tracked the attitudes and preferences of approximately 1,700 of its tween and teen users towards environmental issues ahead of Earth Day.

The recent survey on Quibblo found 68 percent of respondents believe their families are not as green as they could be, versus 19 percent who said their families are "very green." Of those who responded that it is essential to observe green practices, 64 percent said they do so because it is important to help the environment for future generations, versus 29 percent who cared about preserving the environment for themselves, today.

In response to questions about specific environmental issues, 46 percent of those surveyed said global warming is the environmental issue that is most important to them, followed by pollution (29 percent); recycling (six percent) and water conservation (four percent) were the least important.

Attitudes about Earth Day and knowledge of planned school activities observing the day were mixed. Twelve percent of Quibblo users said it is not important to observe Earth Day and only about half (54 percent) know when Earth Day occurs. (It is April 22, 2009). In addition, a full 33 percent of students said their school does not take part in Earth Day; of those schools that do participate, 19 percent said their schools clean an area in observation of Earth Day and 22 percent said their schools planned unspecified "other" activities to honor Earth Day.
