Americans tell pollsters they're really, really worried about the environment

Anxiety about climate change and other environmental issues has grown significantly in just the past few years, according to what Americans have been telling pollsters.

We understand. We created Cloverly because we felt frustrated and guilty about the carbon costs of the shipping that brings so many products to our doors. We wanted to do something about the problem. We thought a lot of other people felt the same way.

Surveys seem to support that. In December 2018, Quinnipiac University asked, "How concerned are you about climate change?" Altogether, 69% said they were concerned: 42% were very concerned, 27% somewhat concerned, 14% not so concerned, and 17% not concerned at all.

Concern rose sharply in just 3 years. In December 2015, only 33% were very concerned, 33% somewhat concerned, 14% not so concerned, and 21% not concerned.

Other pairs of polls consistently show similar trends:
