I was doing well. Got to question 23, about use of a list of products. There was no 'Do not use' or n/a column. For example I re-use bottles, but rarely use them because I do not carry bottles of water around with me. I do not ever wrap sandwiches or use any kind of wrap. Never buy straws or use travel cutlery or wipes of any kind, menstruation is way back in history. HQ, Help!

I agree with previous comments, but done.

Done but a bit of a slog but made me think about the environment and related things in more depth.

glammanana Mon 10-Feb-20 14:06:06

All done,it really made me think .

gillybob Mon 10-Feb-20 17:51:25

I agree there should have been more n/a or
“I have no use for this” choices .

That took ages.

every time I do a survey I realise how inadequate the questions and the answer options are

NotSpaghetti Fri 14-Feb-20 20:56:28

I think the people who put these things together do not generally do it well. I wish they would employ a specialist to do it. I was also stumped by the inadequacies of the questions Monica.
Even the ones that say "would you be more likely to buy x if the packaging was y" were poorly worded.

Also, it's ridiculous to ask if you'd buy a product just by knowing how much they gave to an environmental project for example. You would need to compare it with others. What if it was 0.005%?

Anyway. It's done. Not sure the evidence gathered will be correct though.

I have compleated it a subject close to my heart.

Aepgirl Sat 15-Feb-20 11:40:15

Completed, but would like to know what a ‘Gransetter’ is (initial blurb) - your proof editor should have picked this up.

Got a bit fed up with the questions, and possible answers. Lots didn’t apply to ‘women of a certain age’. Future questionnaires should be more relevant.

I’ve probably now blown my chances of winning!

Done. Took me about 15 minutes. I agree that n/a would be a good option on some questions.
Also, I’ve been green aware for many decades. In the section on which changes I’ve made in the last 2 years I was frustrated as I couldn’t explain all the changes I’d made way earlier than that.

Bobdoesit Sat 15-Feb-20 13:29:46

Done but what a horrible survey and I usually enjoy doing them! A complete redesign of this one is in order – please don’t recycle it.

grannydarkhair Sat 15-Feb-20 14:08:36

Done, but I agree with everyone else, many of the questions were poorly worded, didn't have n/a as an alternative, didn't take into account that some of us have been environmentally aware for a long time, etc.

narrowboatnan Sat 15-Feb-20 14:19:24

I’ve done it, but fancy asking Gransnetters about menstrual pads etc. Not even sure what a menstrual cup is. Will have to look it up now.

ShewhomustbeEbayed Sat 15-Feb-20 20:03:47

Done !

Kittyme1 Sat 15-Feb-20 20:51:25

Completed though very long winded.
