Will we purchase and wear clothes more responsibly in the future? Further findings from the OEKO-TEX® “The Key to Confidence” global survey
In 2017, Anerca was commissioned by OEKO-TEX®/TESTEX to conduct ground-breaking, comprehensive research about textile sustainability with over 11,000 consumers in ten countries. Key findings were presented at WEAR 2017.This year, Karp will present special data that looks specifically at the consumer part of the SDG12 mandate to answer the question: “Will people buy less?” The presentation will focus specifically on Canadians and Americans.
11:50 – 12:50 – Breakout session/Workshop
Linda Wegelin (TESTEX) & Ellen Karp (Anerca)
How we can help push the paradigm for responsible clothes consumption?
In this interactive workshop, we’ll use our imaginations to explore what a world of responsible clothing consumption will look like and feel like. What will its impact be on our personal and work lives? What rewards and challenges can we anticipate? How can we be part of “The change (we) wish to see?” What can we learn from the food industry’s giant 20-year shift to heightened wellness, integrity and accountability? What tools – in terms of communication, education, innovation or technology - can help facilitate a “better textile world” for consumers?
