Complementarity vs. Substitutability from Individual to Collective Environmental Action

Research to address whether or not private actions meant to protect the environment, such as decisions to purchase green products (i.e. "acting green") foster or preclude collective action in support of the environment, such as political support for centralized environmental policy (i.e.,"voting green"). In economic terms, are green actions and green voting net complements or net substitutes?
