Primary Outcomes
Primary Outcomes (end points)
donation to the NGO atmosfair (participants’ willingness to reduce 〖CO〗_2 emissions, which we can use as a proxy for climate conscience. We can use this information to analyze how participants’ reaction to Realtime Shower Feedback (RTF) differs across different levels of climate conscience, and to obtain further insights on the nature of the variable costs of showering)

Send/Used promocodes
[a second measure of how much participants value receiving RTF. The more the participants click on links (to use them either for themselves or send it to friends) the more they value receiving RTF or expect their friends to value receiving RTF.

Furthermore, we can use this information to assess if a person who has experienced RTF is more likely to activate coupons than a person who has not.

Finally, we can assess if households’ beliefs about their friends’ WTP for RTF are correct.]
