GRS stands for Global Recycled Standard. This is a standard which verifies the presence and amount of recycled material in fabrics. Next to that it tracks the flow of raw materials from its source to the final product. It is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions. The GRS certificate only applies to fabrics that contain more than 50% recycled fibers.
The goal of the Global Recycled Standard is to provide a trademark for customers, brands and consumers to recognize verified recycled products, to increase the use of recycled materials in products and to reduce the harm caused by its production to people and the environment. The standard wants to create a transparent market in which harmful environmental and chemical impacts are minimized throughout the whole supply chain. Every year all companies in the supply chain are audited by a professional third-party certification body.
