What does our research tell us?
The Ocean Project’s most recent research found that Households that speak English as a second language are more willing than the average American to take environmentally-friendly action.
If you have visitors/users who speak English as a second language, it’s important to make information accesible to them. This means providing both translations and consulting with someone who can put the material in cultural context. It’s important to make sure you reach out to your visitors in a way that they understand and connect with.
The best way to do this is to consult someone who belongs to the group you’re trying to reach, be careful not to make assumptions, and always be open to feedback from your target community.
