Ensure tags and other packaging meet the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS)

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 “Packaging material must not contain PVC, paper or cardboard used in packaging material, hang tags, swing tags etc. must be recycled or certified according to FSC or PEFC.”

Checkpoint’s global network of apparel labelling production locations are fully FSC accredited. 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.
