11 Quality seals for sustainable products
In order to receive globally recognized seals for sustainably produced products, all sustainability and ecology criteria must be met. This ranges from the ecological cultivation of organic cotton, the living and working conditions of the farmers to the entire supply chain from cultivation, weaving, dyeing to the textile processing industry. At all stages of this chain, social factors and the issues of the use of pesticides, chemical substances and toxic paints with heavy metals, etc. must be taken into account.
Only when all of these criteria are met can such seals be awarded. In addition, regular on-site checks are carried out to ensure that the criteria are still met.
The most important seals among them are:
