Research in the field of environmental studies suggests that proenvironmental belief is rooted in a desire to minimize the negative impact of humans on the physical environment. Furthermore, recent research indicates that industrial animal agriculture leads to enormous environmental harm. Through careful analysis of a range of environmental ethical theories and through a series of qualitative interviews with undergraduate students, this study explores how environmental beliefs influence behavior as well as the psychological mechanisms at work when individual with proenvironmental attitudes consider their food choices.
