This article aims to identify the variables that appear to be most influential in motivating individuals to participate in environmentally responsible behavior in a western city of Turkey. The model of Hines, Hungerford, and Tomera (19861987) on responsible environmental behavior has been used in this research, and its findings are compared, discussed, and interpreted. The "contradictory" findings of our work could be considered to be involved in challenging and/or contributing to the referenced meta-analysis. The analysis is thought to extend its exploratory power by incorporating cross-cultural variables and conditions.
