Even though the brand that makes the green products are an important predictor, not enough research has focused how the brand personality and image could impact the purchase intent of the brand. Findings suggest that exciting brands with higher levels of greenness than sincere brands. The mediation effect of brand affect was also studied and it was found that it had a non-significant impact on purchase intention.
