Survey: Consumers do care about sustainable fashion

37% of European consumers recycle their clothes and 62% wear their clothes for at least a few years according to a survey carried out by Fashion Revolutions in 2020. Additionally, 69% of people would like to know how their clothes are manufactured. Will those trends gain more momentum this year? How will the fashion industry adapt to the changing consumer behaviour?

Fashion For Change searches for answers and is aiming to find out the current challenges and solutions in Europe’s circular fashion industry. If you want to know more and be updated – check out our webpage and sign up for the mailing list.

European Research and Innovation Days

Year 2021 marks the start of Horizon Europe, our most ambitious EU research and innovation programme. The programme will be launched at European Research and Innovation Days on June 23 and 24 June 2021. As part of the food, Bioeconomy and Natural Resources as well as Digital, Industry and Space work programmes there will be funding opportunities interesting to the fashion SMEs as well. Stay tuned if you have a vision how to increase the circularity in textiles or environmental performance of industrial processes or in case you are interested in bio-based materials either from the materials manufacturing or training and skills development angle.
