CHAMPIONING SUSTAINABILITY WITH GOTS CERTIFICATION
In an era where sustainability is not just a trend but a necessity, businesses are striving to align their practices with ethical and environmental standards. This is especially true in the textile and garment industry. Consumers, particularly those frequenting cultural enterprises and visitor attractions are increasingly demanding products that are not only high-quality but also have a verifiable sustainable and ethical pedigree.
Kingfisher Giftwear is one such business leading the way in sustainability. Recently, we proudly announced our achievement of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) accreditation, a significant milestone that underscores our commitment to sustainable practices.
Achieving GOTS Accreditation
GOTS is a globally recognised standard for textiles made from organic fibres. The certification process imposes stringent environmental and social criteria, covering every step of the manufacturing process - from the harvesting of raw materials to labelling, processing, and packaging.
The attainment of the GOTS accreditation is a testament to the company's dedication to environmental and social responsibility. As Nigel Frost, Commercial Director at Kingfisher Giftwear, puts it, "We're ecstatic to have achieved the GOTS accreditation. It mirrors our significant efforts to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of our business operations."
Ensuring Traceability and Transparency
Traceability is particularly important for retail outlets in cultural enterprises and visitor attractions that are keen to stock garments with sustainable and ethical credentials. They can now source GOTS-certified products from Kingfisher Giftwear, confident in the knowledge that these items are produced with respect for people and the planet.
Customers visiting these retail outlets can trust that the garments they are buying are ethically and sustainably produced, with traceability right back to the cotton field.
Offering Sustainable Services
GOTS certification is offered on a wide range of garments and the following decoration methods: Transfer printing, embroidery, and digital garment printing. We offer GOTS products that are labelled separately.
This allows us to meet the growing demand for sustainable products while delivering on our commitment to flexibility and customer satisfaction.
