WECF: New pocket guide and report on children’s textiles and chemicals
Despite a new EU textile regulation in 2011, chemical contents of textiles are still a concern and raise many questions among consumers, especially parents who want the best for their children. But how to find its way out in the label jungle? To help consumers make a choice and to provide insight on how to improve the regulation towards a sustainable textile model, a report "Textiles: Stop the chemical overdose" and key recommendations was recently published by WECF in English www.wecf.eu. An executive summary and a pocket guide are also available in French at www.wecf.fr/ www.projetnesting.fr.
WECF also recently organised a workshop on Toys Eco-design in Paris. To review eco-design aspects, WECF gathered a variety of stakeholders such as risk assessors, standardisation bodies, laboratories, researchers, designers, toy manufacturers, retailers and other key players. Roundtables and workshops were an opportunity to learn more about eco-design, a successful model from an environmental, social and economic perspective.
