I guess eco-efficiency is related of how the products and consumers interact with the market and environment. So if the product has a high impact in its life cycle assessment, and even its production is clearly related to environmental issues and consumers still prefer to buy them, because they are cheap (of course, everyone wants to buy affordable things). So far only down sides, but then if the consumer demand or is encouraged to provide the waste for recycling or even their own reuse and Companies receive tax incentive to do so, well that doesn`t sound that bad. So the governments must motivate such interactions by creating tax reductions and compensations if companies choose to follow up in their waste and reuse policies with clients. And consumers play an important role by then acting participating in a new form of product and company interactions, by always giving feedbacks and demanding new solutions to old dilemmas.
