Purpose: The article aims to identify the factors influencing consumers’ choice of green clothing products in the context of the theory of consumption values. Design/methodology/approach: The research was conducted on 496 Polish consumers in December 2020 from who 212 had experience in purchasing green clothing products. Self-administered questionnaires were distributed and structural equation modelling was used for analysis. Findings: The results show that emotional, conditional, and environmental values had significantly positive impact on consumers’ choice behaviour toward green clothing products; however functional, social and epistemic values had no influence on it. Practical Implications: The results are important for retailers and producers of green clothing products for building a marketing communication campaign for Polish market as well as labelling and creating eco-brands for those products. Originality/value: The recognition of Polish consumers’ incentives of buying green clothing through the lens of consumption values theory.
