GRS Certification

GRS Certification

Why GRS?

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is promoted by Textile Exchange, one of the most important non-profit organizations that internationally  promote responsible and sustainable development in the textile sector. With this standard, Textile Exchange recognizes the fundamental importance of recycling for the growth of a model of sustainable production and consumption; aims to encourage the reduction of resource consumption (virgin raw materials, water and energy) and to increase the quality of recycled products. The GRS provides for the issue of a third party verified environmental statement which proves:

  • the content of recycled materials of their products (both intermediate and finished)
  • compliance with environmental and social criteria in all of the production chain.

All products that are composed of at least 20% of pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled materials can be GRS certified.
