Does culture affect recycling? The answer is “yes”: people who consumate culture – recycle more, regardless of whether the trash containers are near or not. This implies a stronger motivation. There is a statistically significant causal relationship between cultural inclinations and a habit to recycle. The same mechanisms probably apply to the other forms of responsibility towards the environment. The goal is to set free the creative gene, inherent to every human being.
