Malaysian demands for green products are escalating due to health concern and green products are common in Malaysia due to various green campaigns in medias over the decades. Yet, the market saturation of green products remained at infancy stage in Malaysia. Therefore, ability to foresee the consumers’ purchase intention on green products is crucial for marketers especially for those who promote products that emphasize animal well-being and environmentally conscious. Theory of Planned Behavior was utilized for this study on green products; and the results indicated that variables such as attitude towards environment and animal welfare, influence of green movement, environmentalist and friends and education level are important in influencing green consumers’ purchasing intention on green products. In addition, age, education and income level, subjective norm such as family and green movement are crucial in determining the non-green consumers’ purchase intention on green products.
