The concept of convertible consumption is of great importance for sustainability. Individuals need to grow up with a sense of sustainable consumption, from early childhood to higher education. Accordingly, the aim of the research is to determine the pre-service teachers' sustainable consumption behavior level. In this context, the pre-service teachers' sustainable consumption behavior level was examined and it was predicted whether there was a significant difference according to various variables. In this study, where the pre-service teachers' sustainable consumption behavior levels were examined, a scanning model, which is one of the quantitative research methods, was used. The universe of the research is teacher candidates studying in Istanbul in 2018-2019 academic year. The sample of the research was determined by using simple random sampling method. Evren is a total of 1250 undergraduate students enrolled in the education faculty of a foundation university within the borders of Istanbul.
