F13. a Story of Waste: Trust, Symbolic Adoption & Sustainable Disposal

This working paper reflects on behavioral challenges in relation to pro-environmental waste management. A proposed combined theorization of symbolic adoption and Construal Level Theory (CLT), with the mediating effect of consumer trust, aims at building a potential model exploring consumer likelihood to adopt ethical disposal practices.
