Parents & millennials most concerned with sustainable textiles

Parenthood and millennials support the sustainability in textiles, according to the new round of finding from the publication by Oeko-Tex Association named, “The Key To Confidence: Consumers and Textile Sustainability—Attitudes, Changing Behaviours, and Outlooks” focused on two powerful consumer groups in the global textile market, millennials and parents.

“The Key To Confidence” online study was conducted in the second half of 2017 with a worldwide sample of more than 11,000 clothing and home textile consumers. Of the total sample, approximately 30 per cent fell into the age group born between 1981-2000, known as millennials, in line with the global population.

In the findings, Oeko-Tex shared how millennials think differently about textile sustainability and how parenthood affects those attitudes.

For example, due to their internet and social media usage, millennials are more aware of the textile industry’s environmental and social shortcomings than older respondents. They are more inclined to consider the textile industry to be a major polluter. As a result, millennials are much more concerned about harmful substances in their clothing and home textile products.

Parenthood tends to intensify worries about all things. Parents of young children in particular voice concerns about harmful substances in a wide variety of products, but especially in home textiles and apparel. Parents’ product safety qualms outpace the concerns of non-parents. Their awareness of and reported purchase of “eco-friendly” clothing and home textiles is substantially higher than people without young children in the house. Correspondingly, interest in certified textiles is higher with both millennials and parents.

The results will be publicised in a series of webinars and presentations over the next several months. A recorded webinar presented by “The Key To Confidence” researcher, Ellen Karp of Anerca, is now available at www.oeko-tex.com/webinars.
