Exploring the Ethical Orientations of Environmental Lifestyle Practitioners: A Mixed Method Study By Louise Comeau

This mixed-method research studied environmental lifestyle practitioners to explore the links between ethical orientation, moral attentiveness and self-determination toward environmental choices. Participants (N = 233) were engaged in 2011-2012 through narrative inquiry (59 interviews), and surveys (174). Ethical orientation (utilitarian, deontological, virtue) was assessed through narrative analysis of values, beliefs and norms, through open-ended and closed-ended questions (Likert, categorical and nominal scales) measuring character traits and through measures of moral judgment (moral reasoning vignettes and moral reasons for environmental actions).
