The Slippery Slope of Green Consumption: the Nonlinear Effects of Social Class

This research reveals that social class has a nonlinear (inverted U-shaped) effect on green consumption; positively mediated by social acceptance at the lower level of social class and negatively mediated by essentialist belief at the higher level. These effects are moderated by consumers’ belief in a just world.
