This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Environmental Management and Sustainability at the International Hellenic University. This research aimed at investigating consumers’ perspectives over environmental practices applied by supermarkets, mainly in relation to packaging and expired food products. For the purpose of the research, a survey was conducted, through the use of a questionnaire, which was distributed among Greek consumers. The findings of the study, which were in accordance to previous similar researches, suggested that Greek consumers consider both packaging and expired food products a major environmental problem. They think that their supermarkets are somewhat environmentally friendly but they do not handle neither of these problems in an efficient way. In addition, consumers pay attention to ethical considerations when purchasing goods from a supermarket, they are willing to change their local supermarket with another, which is more environmentally friendly or to buy more from a « green » supermarket, nevertheless, they are not ready to pay higher prices, in order to reward the environmental procedures of their local supermarket.
