Fighting Planned Obsolescence Practices and Excessive Consumption: the Positive Effect of Pre-Purchase Product Reparability Communication on Consumers’ Attitude

This research examines the influence of pre-purchase product reparability communication on consumers’ attitude. Results from three between-subjects experiments show a positive influence of product reparability communication on attitude through consumers’ perception of the firm’s social responsibility and their perceived durability of the product. Product perceived reliability moderate these effects.
