What do we do?
We at Swagg have had a strong environmental thinking since the beginning and over the years have had different strategies for working towards sustainable development in our industry.
In February 2021, after much work, we became GOTS-certified. GOTS stands for “Global Organic textile standard” and is an international labeling organization with a focus on the environment. GOTS certification is among the highest certifications a garment can have as they have requirements that permeate the entire production cycle – from cotton cultivation, manufacturing, handling to printing the textile with certified color. The requirements for the garments to be approved with the GOTS label are that they contain a minimum of 95% organic material.
GOTS also includes the social aspects such as taking care of and securing the working environment and rights for all people who work throughout the manufacturing chain. Among other things, they make sure that the wages of workers on the farms are adjusted in the right way that can be lived on. It must also be ensured that the environment for those who work is good and the requirements for the amount of chemicals are strict. There must be no harmful substances that can affect human health at any stage of production. Checks to ensure that the requirements are maintained in all parts of the production chain are carried out regularly by various bodies under GOTS.
Finally, GOTS also places high demands on the garments’ quality and wear, which must have a long service life, which means that end customers can buy GOTS-certified garments with a clear conscience.
