Research Assessment on the Attitudes and Motivations of Women in Waste

Studies on plastics and gender displayed three overarching concepts including women’s interlinked role with household care, their role in the plastics value chain, and perception of hazard in the waste sector.

Environmental behaviors often serve as an
impetus for determining green consumption
practices (Zhao et al., 2021), with women
endorsing stronger pro-environmental
attitudes than men. Aruta (2021) observed
that women tend to exhibit greater willingness to reduce plastic consumption whether or not there was any external social influence. On the other hand, men’s motivations are often a factor in witnessing others engage in plastic reduction.
