This paper sought to explore similarities, variations and determinants of sustainable plastics consumption behavior within a sample of approximately 7600 respondents from eight European countries.

The regression analysis suggests that personal responsibility, having high values for nature, being a member of a nature organization and feeling knowledgeable about plastic pollution are important predictors of sustainable plastics consumption.
