Sustaining Sustainable Hydration: the Importance of Aligning Information Cues to Motivate Long Term Consumer Behavior Change

We compare the effectiveness of information placed near an upstream choice (e.g., desks) versus near consumption (e.g., water dispensers) on behavior change (refilling reusable bottles). Over a 7-week field experiment, we find the signage near the upstream choice to be much more effective in creating habits in the post-intervention period.
