Let Us Give Thanks: How Gratitude and Message Framing Can Reduce Food Waste

This research tests a theoretical model in which an emotional appeal (gratitude ‘for having’ vs. ‘not having') is shown to increase consumers’ awareness of food waste issues (consumer intentions, participation, and choice to receive information related to food waste issues.), depending on the associated congruent message framing (gain vs. loss).
