Where is your recycled yarn coming from, and what material is going into it?

Businesses that manufacture recycled yarns are validated by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certification to show customers and consumers that they are committed to internationally recognized standards and practices for sustainability.

GRS certification was created to reduce the impact on people and the environment from the production of materials by driving a higher percentage of recycled content in products. 

The GRS certification also provides assurance for retailers and consumers that products are being made in a more sustainable way. The standard is managed with input from key stakeholders such as recyclers, suppliers, brands, and retailers all over the world.

GRS verifies that recycled materials are used, and it also tracks responsible production methods. Companies must demonstrate a chain of custody, and obtain certification from a professional third party that audits and validates each step of the supply chain.

Products that have earned a GRS certification can include the GRS logo on their products to let consumers know the items have been sustainably produced.
