When Waste Costs: the Influence of Price on Consumers’ Perceived Waste and Purchase Intention of an Excessive Amount of Product

This paper suggests that price can serve as an indicator of waste perception and help to decrease excessive purchase behavior. Two studies supported our proposition that controlling the price as the same, consumer’s purchase intention of an excessive offer over an adequate one is lower when the price is higher.
