Teaching Old Dog New Tricks… and Old Bottles New Jeans. the Role of Implicit Theories in the Evaluation of Recycled Products

Entity theorists can nevertheless be persuaded in buying more recycled products if they attribute the merit of the transformation to the internal characteristics of the materials.
