Valuing our clothes is a summary of the key findings of a major technical report published by WRAP in 2012.

It presents estimates of the carbon, water and waste footprints of clothing throughout its life-cycle for one year for the UK as a whole, plus evidence from a major new survey of consumer behaviour involving 7,950 UK adults aged 16+.

It seeks to highlight opportunities across the clothing value chain to reduce the resource impacts of clothing supply, use and disposal.

Initiatives:

  • Fibre & fabric selection
  • Consumer behaviour
  • Re-use & recycling
  • Design for extending clothing life

Report
4 January 2009

This project examined two aspects of consumer behaviour in relation to food waste: understanding (and use) of guidance dates on packs; and demand for more varied portion sizes. General and food-type specific insights have been obtained which should allow WRAP and others to develop advice and solutions to help consumers reduce the amount of food they throw away.

Initiatives:
  • Food and drink
  • Reducing and preventing food waste
  • Consumer behaviour
Sector:
  • Hospitality and food service
  • Retailers and brands
Report

Research was carried out for WRAP by Brook Lyndhurst to investigate consumer attitudes and behaviours relatingto food and food waste, and what might motivate consumers to throw away less food. The results of the workfed directly into the development of the Love Food Hate Waste consumer-facing campaign. It included a national quantitative survey plus focus groups. The work was also used to develop a metric that could be used to track the impact of the campaign. This report focuses on the quantitative aspects of the research.
