Consumers baulk at eco-fashion prices, says research

Written by Brett Mathews

H&M Conscious: a winner with consumers

LONDON - Findings from a leading UK research business indicate that just three per cent of consumers would be willing to pay significantly more for eco-friendly or sustainable fashion garments. The findings show that a fifth of consumers would not pay any extra for sustainable fashion, while just 3 per cent would pay 21 per cent extra. The findings are hugely significant given that a mark-up of 20 per cent more on green fashion items is often the going rate given the extra costs generally involved in producing niche, green fashion items.
