Early View: Accounting for the Performance of Environmentally Significant Behavior: The Symbolic Significance of Recycling

In her article “Accounting for the Performance of Environmentally Significant Behavior: The Symbolic Significance of Recycling” argues Gail Markle that “that Americans’ failure to engage with environmental issues at a collective level is rooted in the individualized culture of American environmentalism”. Markle’s argument is based on an analysis of accounts that her US-American interviewees give for confining their pro-environmental behavior to recycling considering the global environmental crisis pronounced by the scientific community. The article is out on Early View.
