Bottled water consumption is one of the human activities that contributes to climate change. The dissertation focuses on psychological and sociodemographic factors that could explain adolescents’ and their parents’/guardians’ bottled water consumption in the context of the Comprehensive Action Determination Model (Klöckner & Blöbaum, 2010). The aim of the first part of the dissertation is to investigate how normative, habitual, intentional, and situational factors can explain adolescents’ and their parents’/guardians’ bottled water consumption. The second part focuses on the relationships between adolescents’ and their parents’/guardians’ awareness of policies that are targeted toward bottled water consumption in Lithuania and their bottled water consumption. The third part is devoted to addressing the roles of normative, habitual, intentional, and situational factors in explaining bottled water consumption in clusters of adolescents and their parents/guardians with different sociodemographic characteristics. The results of the current study indicated that psychological factors are important in explaining adolescents’ and their parents’/guardians’ bottled water consumption. The dissertation gives new insights regarding bottled water consumption from the environmental psychology perspective which could be relevant in developing and implementing the strategies aimed to promote pro-environmental behavior.
