This article reports the results of an environmental attitude survey conducted in Northern Cyprus in 1994. It was hypothesized that there is a relationship between environmental consciousness and the variables of age, level of education, area of residency, origin and gender of the respondent. Membership in an environmental organization, habit of taking one's own shopping bag when going shopping, choosing environmentally friendly aerosols, and reusing the empty bottles were taken to be possible indicators of environmental attitudes and behavior among respondents. Since no statistically significant relationship was found in most of the cases, it was concluded that the hypothesis was not confirmed.
