Introduction: A country's success regarding a new economic policy entitled “ resistive economics” needs recognition of some Islamic concepts and lifestyle such as savings, frugality and recycling. Obviously, the family plays a critical role in such a healty lifestyle. With regard to the importance of recycling household waste and its compliance with issues like economic policy and Islamic teachings
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 330 family of a small city in Mazandaran province during 2013. The samples were collected from 33 regions using cluster sampling method. The data were collected by means of tailor-made data collection sheet and analyzed using descriptive statistical indexes and Chi- square test. p<0.05 was considered as significant.
