[Question] Is there any evidence that people who recycle also advocate for institutional policy changes to combat man-made climate change?

It seems intuitive to me that people who recycle are more likely to vote for politicians that promise to reduce carbon emissions, or to volunteer for non-profits for example.

Is that true though? The rebuttal might be that recycling just makes people feel good about themselves and prevents them from having a more concrete impact (i.e. if everyone started recycling correctly, we would barely make a dent in fossil fuel emissions).
