Well, we are excited!
Our first topic is “close to heart”. We also hope to enlighten those who want to learn a bit more about Organic Fibers and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification.
You probably heard that "Organic Textiles" is safer for you and our planet. If you would like to explore a little further, please keep reading. (Before we move on, keep in mind that not all organics are created equal. We'll talk more about that more in the coming weeks).
First, let us share several facts about GOTS certification & organic textiles that we want to share with you:
What is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)?
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world's leading processing standard for textiles, including clothing, home textiles, and personal care products made from certified organically produced raw materials.
GOTS has an international working group with representation from the US, UK, Japan, and Europe.
What does GOTS certified mean?
GOTS certification includes strict environmental and social criteria for operations along the entire textile supply chain. And briefly, it means GOTS certified products are not only sustainable but also ethically produced.
GOTS is recognized globally and growing its impact since its first inception in 2002 during Intercot Conference in Germany.
Why is organic better for you?
Organic means no nasties, and you're protected. Organically produced goods have no harmful residues, and you will not be exposed to harmful chemicals, dyes, etc.
When you think of the "big picture," we are all in it together (us, the environment, farmworkers, and those who make your goods), and everyone is protected. The farming and manufacturing process is done without using hazardous chemicals, which is safe for everyone involved and our planet!
What does GOTS Certification mean for you?
GOTS certification means "peace of mind" for you. Certification by a reputable third-party organization is accurate and trustworthy when compared to self-claims by corporations.
