CLOTHING SURVEY - Erasmus +
It is difficult nowadays to ignore the many social and environmental health consequences of our consumption or, rather, our overconsumption. The textile industry is not left out in this regard.

The average consumer does not necessarily realize the excesses of fast-fashion, the various pollution generated by textile production, or the living conditions of employees in textile factories. However, if the consumer cannot act directly on these elements, it is in his power to act on the way he consumes.

Buying less clothes, or buying more wisely, is probably possible (?)

We, the Erasmus + French team involved in the "Minimalism" project, would be grateful if you could answer the following survey which aims at identifying the textile habits / practices of consumers and their "level of knowledge" of the textile industry.

After some questions aimed at collecting information in order to formalize a typical profile of the respondent, important in the context of the statistical treatment that will follow, the survey is built around four (4) main axes in a logical sequence :

PERCEPTION OF FASHION

CLOTHING CONSUMPTION HABITS

LIFETIME AND CLOTHING RECYCLING

INFORMATION ON THE CONDITIONS OF MANUFACTURE, ECO-RESPONSIBLE FASHION AND ECO-LABELS

We (students & teachers) did our best to develop a neat survey, with some imperfections (maybe too many questions ?) but with a lot of involvement.

We are aware of the time it can take to answer them, and we thank you warmly for the time that you will devote to it.

Please note that you have until May 10, 2019 to submit your answer.
After that date, the survey will no longer be available online.

Your participation in this survey is precious to us to carry out our project. And, do not hesitate to broadcast it widely !
