Ecological Housing - for whom?

Waldo, Åsa LU (1997) In Thinking, Saying, Doing. Sociological Perspectives on Environmental Behaviour. 1997:2. p.61-81
Abstract
The purpose of the study was to analyse whether the individuals that have chosen ecological housing as a form of life, succeed in realising their ideal environmental lifestyle or not and if not, why? The method used was in-depth interviews with residents in an ecological village. Living in an ecological village has different meanings for different households and the impact of living in the village is due to the ideals and expectations before moving to the village. Three types of residents are identified; the eco-idealists, the eco-concerned and the eco-unaware persons, all with different reasons for choosing to live in an ecological village.
