Environment-behavior relationship is a two-way street, human behavior could change the environment, and the environment could shape our behavior. There are two kinds of ways to preserve the environment: technology and behavior, but when technology is inefficient, behavioral change seems to be the proper approach. The paper describes the two types of strategies used in order to change the behavior, insisting on the consequent ones, and especially the positive reinforcement, as well as the identified weaknesses of this technique.
