The human, nature connection refers to the understanding that we are a part of nature and that our actions have an impact on the environment. The organic movement emphasizes the importance of this connection and encourages us to live in harmony with nature by making choices that minimize harm to the environment. This includes choosing organic products that are grown and processed without more naturally, and in a way that supports global social equity, biodiversity and the health of the planet. By incorporating organic practices into our lives, we can help to promote a more sustainable and balanced relationship between humans and nature.
Organic Standards: Promoting Sustainability, Positive Ecological Impact and Social Responsibility
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) promote ecology and social responsibility in the textile and latex industries through strict environmental and labor standards. Choosing products that meet these standards supports a more sustainable and responsible future.
Global Organic Textile Standard
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) promotes ecology and social responsibility in the production of organic fibers and textiles by setting environmental and labor standards that must be met along the entire supply chain. This includes stringent requirements to restrict certain chemicals, preservation of biodiversity, and fair treatment of workers. The GOTS certification ensures that consumers can purchase organic textiles with confidence that they have been produced in a sustainable and responsible manner.
Global Organic Latex Standard
The Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) promotes ecology and social responsibility in the production of organic latex by setting strict guidelines for the organic certification of latex products. These guidelines include requirements for sustainable and responsible farming practices, fair labor conditions, and reduced environmental impact. The GOLS certification provides assurance to consumers that the organic latex products they purchase meet strict standards for environmental and social responsibility.
