Results of the 3rd IPSOS European Barometer 2021
TEXTILE CARE: ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS NOW CENTRAL TO EUROPEANS' NEW TEXTILE CARE HABITS.
GINETEX, the International Association for Textile Care Labelling, presents the results of its third European barometer for 2021, "Europeans and the textile care label" conducted with IPSOS. The survey was carried out in seven European countries: France, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Spain.
Today, environmental awareness has become widespread and this clearly translates in our barometer’s results. If Europeans want more information on ecological textile care, it is because they are themselves inclined to change their cleaning habits and make them more environmentally friendly.
This study was conducted by the IPSOS institute, for GINETEX, the International Association for Textile Care Labelling, on a sample of 1 000 people aged 18 to 65 in each of the 7 countries (i.e. a total of 7 000 people): France, Germany, The Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Sweden, Italy and Spain. This study was conducted online from December 18 to 21, 2020 for France and from January 25 to February 15, 2021 for Germany, The Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Sweden, Italy and Spain.
