Environmental concern case study for this report was conducted over 5 individuals from the following ethnic backgrounds -- Latino, Afro-American, Hispanic, Asian (Chinese) and East Indian. In order to keep the results of the study even, all of them were selected from the age group of 20-23. All of them are students at an undergraduate or graduate level, working either part or full time positions along with their studies. All of them are friends whom I had known for over an year. The information mentioned in this report has been compiled based on an informal interview and my observations of their lifestyle in the past.

They were pretty strict and he was always taught to clean up after himself.

The individual from the Asian (specifically Chinese) background had a mixed attitude towards environmental issues.
