Abstract

 

We compared the labeling technique with a traditional social marketing campaign, providing thought-provoking arguments, regarding their long term effect on ecological behavior.  In this study (n = 241), we provided participants either with an ecological, self-descriptive label, an information-based campaign promoting ecological behavior or no information at all, and compared behavior in a repeated social dilemma situation, framed as an ecological task.  We found that labeling outperforms classical campaigns on the longer term.  We did not observe the expected interaction with mental load.
