Global Recycled Standard (GRS)

Global Recycled Standard (GRS)

Textile Exchange's Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an internationally recognized standard that sets requirements for the certification of recycled materials and third-party traceability of the supply chain. It sets new standards for the sustainable use of recycled materials in products and ensures that products bearing the GRS logo are made from recycled materials and meet high social, environmental and chemical criteria.
By adhering to strict guidelines for the use of recycled materials and transparency along the supply chain, the GRS sets a new benchmark for the textile industry. It is important to note that the GRS can be applied not only to textile products, but also to non-textile products such as packaging and accessories.

Why choose the GRS?

Sustainable materials: The GRS promotes the use of recycled materials, which helps to reduce the need for new raw materials and reduce the environmental impact of waste.

Social and environmental standards: The GRS ensures that products carrying the standard meet certain social and environmental criteria. This includes aspects such as compliance with labour standards and minimizing environmental impacts during the manufacturing process.

Transparency: With the GRS, brands and consumers can be sure that the origin of the recycled materials can be traced back to the place of origin.
