Look: An EU Eco-Label for Clothes!Posted: November 11, 2011
Already in 2008 Rapanui proposed a label like the EU label for electronics. This sounds awesome and is exactly what I recently talked about with Switcher, who also support such a label. It would surely have to be mandatory to have an effect. Rapanui announced that it will come forward with a proposal to a parliamentary commission sometime now:
This development work is being carried out by Rapanui with a view to handing over the draft framework fully to a parliamentary commission over the winter of 2011/12. However, it should be noted that Rapanui’s A-G clothing ecolabel proposal is not currently a scheme, policy, service or certification currently provided by an independent organisation, nor is it not recognised by government or any governmental organisation, or affiliated in any official way with current EU legislation. Instead it is intended to be a real-life demonstration by Rapanui to show and document the viability of a scheme, with the purpose to raise awareness of it’s potential to improve the clothing industry.
