Econscious First to Earn the Global Organic Textile Standard Certification
Petaluma, California-based Econscious, announced it is the first, and, currently, the only U.S. supplier certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The GOTS certification ensures that the entire manufacturing process adheres to a strict set of standards, including criteria detailing allowable dyes and closures, prohibited substances, and how waste water should be dealt with. The GOTS also includes important social components to ensure living wages are paid and a safe, hygienic work environment is provided.
Dale Denkensohn, Econscious president, said, “Our goal is to be the most trusted source for organic and sustainable promotional products.” Denkensohn continued, “The GOTS certification is a hallmark achievement. It helps position Econscious to make a larger impact towards a better future by guaranteeing peace of mind to the growing market of conscientious consumers.”
