This paper examines some of the psychological factors which may be relevant to people adopting more positive attitudes and behaviors in relation to sustainability. It is based on two premises: [i] that sustainability is not understood, is thought of as more complex and is not perceived in the same way as recycling or energy-efficiency and [ii] that attitudes, beliefs, knowledge and behavior in relation to sustainability are not consistent. It also proposes some lessons for implementation of more sustainable activities by consumers, manufacturers and designers and areas for future research. © 2006 Taylor & Francis Group.
