Abstract

Eco-friendly behavior like recycling, choosing modes of transportation, or saving resources differs among countries: In some countries walking instead of driving a car is perceived as being out of the question and in other countries getting to work by walking in combination with public transportation is part of the daily routine. If there is no infrastructure for either recycling or for alternative mobility options like public transportation or bike lanes in a country, people will not be able to engage in recycling activities or use their car to a lesser extent. A comparison of eco-friendly or green behavior in five countries will show the differences. Whether it is a matter of age, gender, education or income or whether regulations or infrastructure might have an influence will be shown in this article.

Keywords: Recycling, Composting, Reusing, Saving Resources, Eco-Friendly Transportation, Eco-Friendly Purchasing
