OEKO-TEX® MADE IN GREEN is a traceable product label for all kinds of textiles (e.g. garments, home textiles) and leather products (e.g. garments, finished and semi-finished leathers) including non-textile/-leather components (e.g. accessories). A MADE IN GREEN product ID proves that the product has been tested for harmful substances. This is achieved by certification according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 or OEKO-TEX® LEATHER STANDARD. It also guarantees that the textile or leather product has been manufactured using sustainable processes under socially responsible working conditions. This is carried out through certification in accordance with OEKO-TEX® STeP. The unique product ID can be used to trace the product. It can thus be shown where the different stages of product manufacturing have taken place.
