1. Global Organic Textile Standard
Allergenic, carcinogenic or toxic chemical residues are not allowed in GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified clothes. All factories are regularly inspected and certified to strict social criteria, meaning no forced labour and no child labour. With certification to the GOTS the use of hazardous chemicals is prohibited, and all waste water is treated, protecting workers and their water supplies. All chemicals must meet strict toxicity- and biodegradability rules.
2. PETA-Approved Vegan
PETA-Approved Vegan highlights clothing made of vegan alternatives to animal-derived materials such as leather, fur, silk, feathers. It helps consumers identify vegan items at a glance while shopping and make purchases that align with their values.
3. Fair Wear
The Fair Wear code is derived from ILO Conventions and the UN's Declaration on Human Rights. The main principles of this standard are: No forced labour. No discrimination in employment. No exploitation of child labour. The payment should meet at least minimum standards and should always be sufficient to meet basic needs of workers and their families and to provide some discrectionary income. The working time shouldn't exceed 48 hours a week. Overtime should be voluntary and paid better than normal hours. Working conditions need to be safe and healthy.
4. Global Recycled Standard
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling. GRS covers processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of all products made with a minimum of 20% recycled material.
1. Organic Content Standard
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) applies to any non-food product containing 95-100 percent organic material. It verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product and tracks the flow of the raw material from its source to the final product.
6. OEKO-TEX Standard 100
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health.
