In the age of “fake news” and “greenwashing,” it’s no surprise that 64% of consumers in “The Key To Confidence: Consumers and Textile Sustainability—Mindsets, Changing Behaviors, and Outlooks” who were aware of eco-textiles claimed that they check at least some of the time to see if sustainability claims are true.
The popularity of organic cotton has grown substantially in recent years. Consumers are increasingly worried about the environment and about harmful substances in the products they buy for themselves and their families. New testing from OEKO-TEX® helps companies throughout the global supply chain easily test their organic cotton products for GMOs (genetically modified organisms), a molecular-level indicator of whether or not cotton products actually meet a fundamental definition of organic.
The OEKO-TEX® Association is again making every effort to provide support in the areas of consumer protection and sustainability along the textile value creation chain in 2018. The modifications of the existing guidelines in the OEKO-TEX® product portfolio have now finally come into effect on 01 April 2018 following a three-month transition period and are valid for all certification systems and other services.
The unique testing process measures the sun protection factor of textiles in a practice-focused and realistic manner under typical usage conditions and makes an important contribution to consumer safety.
From a young age, we use leather products in all areas of life – from baby play rugs made of sheepskin to footwear, sophisticated designer furniture, and seats in aeroplanes, trains and cars.

In 2018, the OEKO-TEX® Association endeavours to provide further targeted support on issues relating to consumer protection and sustainability throughout the textile value creation chain. The existing guidelines of the OEKO-TEX® product portfolio were updated on 02 January. The new regulations come into effect on 01 April 2018 for all certification systems and other services, following a three-month transition period.
