European Commission Radio Ireland: Online shopping and greenwashing concerns

4 February 2021
European Consumer Centre advises the public to think twice about buying so-called ‘green’ items online. New figures from the European Commission show that 42% of products labelled online as ‘green’ are exaggerated, false or deceptive, particularly for clothes, cosmetics and household equipment.
Dr Cyril Sullivan of ECC Ireland says consumers should do their research before buying alleged ‘green’ products on the internet.
