As a recent study published in Journal of Consumer Research, customers should not be given an authoritative command to make them change their behavior of environmentally damaging. If they are allowed to announce their responsibility openly, they will be more likely to practice the environmentally behavior with understanding.

The study’s author said that “Commitment promotes consistent changes in behavior, especially if consumers pledge specific steps to promote the desired behavior. Consumers who publicly express a commitment to the environment will reinforce their commitment and increase sustainable behavior”

Moreover, those guests also have cooperation to turn off the lights before they are leaving out of room.
