To fulfill this purpose, three experiments were carried out.
In Experiment 1, three-step investigation was conducted in Japan and Taiwan. In Experiment 1-1, participants were required to report what object can be associated with eco-friendly materials and what kind of feelings can be expressed by eco-friendly materials. In Experiment 1-2, twenty-six materials were displayed, including eco-friendly and non-eco-friendly materials. Each participant was required to write down the affective feelings describing each material based on their vision and tactile evaluation. In Experiment 1-3, each participant was asked to point out which materials are eco-friendly materials. The results showed:
(1)Recycled paper was considered to be most related to eco-friendly materials for Taiwanese participants.
(2)Recycled paper" and PET bottle were considered to be most related to eco-friendly materials for Japanese participants.
(3)"Rough" feeling was found to be the most related to eco-friendly for both Taiwanese and Japanese participants.
(4)Poly Lactic Acid was recognized as eco-friendly materials by Japanese participants, but Taiwanese participants disagree. In addition, common paper, denim, and gypsum were recognized as non-eco-friendly materials by Japanese participants, but Taiwanese participants recognized these three materials as eco-friendly materials.
(5)The comparison between experimental data and eco-indicator 99 was made; the results showed that the agreement between Taiwanese data and eco-indicator 99 are better than those with Japanese.
Moreover, the space of affective feeling of eco-friendly was built by using one-dimensional scale. The bipolar ends were "natural" and "man-made". The "rough" feeling was found to be close to "natural", and the "expensive" feeling was found to be close to "man-made". The objects related to "rough" were recycled paper, corrugated paper, stone, hemp, wood, stone paper and bamboo. The objects related to "expensive" feeling included silk, stone paper, bamboo and wood.
