ABSTRACT
Environmental protection and green education are important global issues. The Internet of things (IoT) is a new effective communication medium for advertisement and dissemination. To promote the concepts of environment protection with green marketing via the IoT is the aim of the study. Case study and focus group are adopted for experiment and analysis. After qualitative analysis, we use factor analysis and regression analysis to analyze the statistical results of questionnaires. The effective questionnaires returned rate of this research is 282/300(94%). The analysis results of Likert scale show that Cronbach’s α for 5 factors are all higher than 0.7 which means the reliability of this research is good. The result of regression analysis also shows that significance of green marketing via the IoT for consumers’ green education is obviously effective. This research presents an indispensable and interesting education way to create a multi-win situation for businesses, consumers, governments and our earth.
