The Intersection of Art and Ethics: The Significance of GOTS Certification
As the conversation around sustainability expands, more and more brands are adopting buzzwords like 'sustainable,' 'eco-friendly,' and 'all-natural' as part of their marketing vocabulary. However, many of these brands fail to fully adhere to ethical practices, nor do they provide the essential proof of the materials used. The question then arises: How can you determine if a brand's cotton products are made consciously? The answer lies in two words: GOTS certification.
The GOTS-certification: a quick overview.
GOTS, or Global Organic Textile Standard, is a certification system that covers the entire textile manufacturing process, from sourcing to manufacturing to labor standards. It's the most widely used processing standard for organic fibers and guarantees a sustainable, low-carbon footprint. GOTS-certified products are made with organic materials grown without harmful pesticides and fertilizers, benefiting both the environment and the health of workers and consumers.
Luxury with a conscience: the fair approach.
Another important advantage of GOTS certification is the promise of ethical labor standards.
GOTS-certified factories are required to offer secure working environments with the guarantee that employees receive a fair wage. This is vital in resolving issues within the exploitation and violations of human rights in the textile industry.
