There have been several threads asking questions relative to the topic(s) addressed in this article. There were so many that asked questions that are covered in this article but were only looking for a portion of the information that I decided to start a new thread that might cover most--if not all--of the bases.

I won't cut and paste the entire article, but here goes:

There is a myriad of organizations spearheading sustainability and ecological initiatives but here are a few to keep in mind when it comes to apparel.
  • Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS): This international organization upholds a detailed processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers, including cotton.
  • Global Recycle Standard (GRS): The GRS is an international, voluntary, standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, as well as social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions.
  • Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC): The SAC features a consortium of retailers, brands, and suppliers, in the apparel, textile, and footwear industries.
  • Oregon Tilth: This non-profit organization focuses on supporting and advocating organic food and farming.
