K6. Persuading the Moral Consumer: Matching Messages to Attitude Basis

We explored the persuasive effects of moral versus practical counter-attitudinal messages on individuals with varying levels of moral conviction toward recycling. Across two studies, when pro-recycling moral conviction was high, the moral (vs. practical) anti-recycling message was more persuasive, but the effects reversed when moral conviction was low.
