Variety of explanatory theories on green consumer behaviour have been put forward in identifying the green consumer however, they do not explains how such relationship is translated into buying decision. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship on demographics factors and environmental beliefs in determining consumer's buying green products behaviours.

While, the environmental beliefs in each individual subject was measured using the HEP-NEP General Environmental Beliefs questionnaires and the green product buying behaviours were measured using the Ecological Conscious Consumer Behaviours questionnaire.
