Choice Architecture, Norms and Sustainable Consumption

Environmental problems are caused not only by industrial production but also by consumption patterns and behaviors of consumers (World Wildlife Fund, 2012; Popescu & Iosim, 2015; DuNann Winter & Koger, 2004; Gardner & Stern, 2002; Vlek & Steg, 2007). Many Latin American countries are experiencing significant progresses in their economies and it is expected that this will yield an increase in citizens’ available income and consumption levels. However, such advancement may negatively impact environmental conditions in these countries.
