'Jesus phone' marks genesis of change

Neil Shoebridge (AFR) | Dec. 15, 2008
Apple's iPhone leads the list of top products for 2008, according to an Australian Financial Review survey.

"Conspicuous consumption may well be replaced by responsible consumption. That will offer marketing opportunities: people will want to be seen doing the right thing and associated with brands and products which reflect their take on enoughism.

"Many savvy marketers are already on to this trend, as evidenced by the swag of "sustainable" products and campaigns hitting the market and some of the hideously expensive upscale products made from recyclable materials," Stewart says.
