AbstractThe main aim of this study was to examine whether theeconomic status (current and in childhood)determines theeco-friendlyattitudes andbehavior. The survey involved 207 adults with different material status in their childhood and at present. Analysis of the results indicates that people raisedin familieswith low and mediummaterial statushave not only a moreeco-friendlyattitudes but also have a greater propensity to various ‘green’ behaviors. The differences among people with different current material status concerning their eco-friendly attitudes and behaviors are not so obvious. The richest people seems to have less pro-eco attitude but on the other hand they are ready to spend more on ecologically friendly household expenses.
