We are a textile testing and certification company based in the U.K.We currently offer two eco-textile schemes.
The first is Oekotex 100 and Oekotex 1000.We have been running this scheme for the last 14 years,oekotex 100 is a series of tests that we carryout on textiles to ensure that there are no harmful chemicals present in the textile.
The tests carriedout are determined by the type of textile.Over 8000 companies worlwide have had their products tested to this standard.Companies that clarify are issued a certificate which allows their products to be labelled.Oekotex 1000 is an environmental standard similar to the ISO 14001 standard with the additional benefit of being textile specific.You can find more information on these products at www.oeko-tex.com.
The other eco standard that we have recently launched is "made in Green".This has been developed by the spainish textile institute AITEX.It looks at the whole textile supply chain from yarn to garment and can be awarded to any textile component company in the supply chain.In order to qualify it requires companies to have an environmental,social and human ecological standard in place.You can get more information from www.madeingreen.com.
We are always looking at ways of improving our schemes and open to suggestions on how to improve them.Any comments are most welcome.
