Likewise, Jharkhand marketers also realise the importance of green marketing concept. Broadly research has been conducted by the researchers on green marketing, but barely research has been carried out covering the rural sector on consumer perception and preferences. This research briefly explains the environmental issues of Jharkhand region and identifies the green values of the consumers, the awareness level about the ecological aspect, green product and practices. The study conducted on green marketing practices and products also emphasizes the perception and the preferences of consumers. This study is carried out with a structured questionnaire of 119 respondents. The paper is followed by a brief introduction and literature review on green marketing.
