@mate_the_label : All Organic Cotton isn’t treated equal. That’s why MATE strictly sources GOTS certified Organic Cotton, which stands for the Global Organic Textile Standard.
GOTS is a textile production certification that limits the use of toxic dyes, bleaches and other chemicals during the production process. It is recognized worldwide as the toughest organic textile standard because it goes beyond verifying the organic farming process and includes every step of manufacturing.
To obtain the GOTS “organic” label, a product must:
– Must contain a minimum of 95% certified organic fibers whereas a product with the label grade ‘made with organic’ must contain a minimum of 70% certified organic fibers
– All chemical inputs (e.g. dyes, auxiliaries and process chemicals) must be evaluated and meeting basic requirements on toxicity and biodegradability/eliminability
– All operators must have an environmental policy including target goals and procedures to minimize waste and discharges
– Must be produced in a mill that enforces strict social standards, treating their employees and the earth with respect.
