Why is it sustainable?
Bed blanket is a sustainable blanket made of 100% GOTS certified cotton and is itself 100% GOTS organic cotton certified.
The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification is applicable to textiles that contain at least 70% certified organic natural fibres and checks for numerous criteria all along the supply chain. This includes:
-toxicity and biodegradability/eliminability requirements for all "chemical inputs" (like dyes)
-only oxygen-based bleaches are allowed (no chlorine bleaching)
-several waste-reduction measures during production
-PVC-free packaging. All paper and cardboard has to be either recycled or FSC/PEFC-certified
-prohibition of child & forced labour
-proper living wages
-safe working conditions
