Today’s environmentally conscious consumer is looking for products that help them to minimise their environmental impact. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
Unlike some textile accreditations, GOTS requires a level of compliance on the packaging used on any products carrying their accreditation. They state that “Paper or cardboard used in packaging material for the retail trade of GOTS Goods (incl. labelling items such as hang tags or swing tags) shall be recycled from pre- or post-consumer waste or certified according to a program that verifies compliance with sustainable forestry management principles.”
We can offer a complete range of recycled and certified boards to ensure that hang tags or other packaging items meet GOTS standards. So, if you are looking for a supplier that you can trust and will help you deliver your sustainability goals, please contact us.
