One of the largest problems in the area of environmental concern is that there is simply too much leftover waste being produced by humans. Waste is everywhere: paper, cans, bottles, plastic, wood, metal. Waste is what we don't anymore - and we do not think about what happens once it goes into the garbage can - landfills, burning, etc.

However, so many things that humans discard can be recycled using contemporary technologies, and if not recycled, composted: plastic, bottles, cans, cardboard, and much vegetative waste. Recycling does take time and energy and is not always easy - it takes attention, perseverance and the four R's: Recycle, Reuse, Reduce and Rethink.

Business Research: Go Green Campaign for Nike, Inc. including survey paper

I have to determine a business problem I wish to investigate. I would like to investigate how Nike could figure out how to make some of the footwear in America as part of a 'GO GREEN' campaign. Is this something that could work for the company? Examples would be - can they make the shoe that is entirely made out of recycled goods all the way down to the box the shoe comes in. How the shoes will be delivered - could Nike have their own fleet of delivery trucks that are strictly Bio-diesel? Also, the building that all the shoes are being made in is 100% self-sufficient? Everything that is used is recycled or can be recycled.

5. Survey Paper
Using the business problem selected in the Week 2 Individual Assignment, develop a problem statement which can be addressed with survey research. Prepare a 10-13-question survey to collect primary data regarding your selected problem statement. Please note that you will not administer this survey as part of this assignment.
Your survey questions should include a mixture of categorical (nominal and ordinal) and quantitative (interval and ratio) variables.

Next, prepare an analysis of your survey. In your analysis, include the following:
a. Explain how the proposed survey addresses your problem statement
b. Determine if your survey questions are appropriate to research your business problem. Explain
c. Identify the level of measurement being used for each of your survey questions
d. Explain what ethical implications must be considered when developing survey questions
