F11. Anti-Consumption For Sustainability: the Environmental Impact of Anti-Consumption Lifestyles, Environmentally Concerned Individuals and Ethical Consumers

We compare the environmental impact of anti-consumption lifestyles, ethical consumption and environmental concern. Environmental impact is lowest for tightwadism (i.e. an anti-consumption lifestyle), unrelated with environmental concern, and highest for ethical consumption. Such findings suggest that resisting consumption offers a viable and effective way towards sustainable consumption.
