OEKO-TEX®, a worldwide association of 18 independent research and test institutes that sets standards for safer textile and leather production and products, is participating with the MADE IN GREEN label in Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly, a new program to make it easier for customers to discover and shop for more sustainable products. The Climate Pledge Friendly label, which will be shown on more than 25,000 products, signifies to customers that the products have one or more of 19 different sustainability certifications that help preserve the natural world.
Amazon evaluated hundreds of external sustainability certifications and chose organizations that certify products that have demonstrated environmentally-related sustainability benefits. OEKO-TEX® is proud to be one of the third-party entities certifying Climate Pledge Friendly products with our MADE IN GREEN label.
“We are working to create more transparency along the textile and leather supply chain and to make it easy for consumers to confidently choose safer, more sustainable products,” said Georg Dieners, OEKO-TEX® Secretary General. “MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® is the right partner for Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly program because our missions are aligned. MADE IN GREEN takes a holistic approach by testing products for harmful substances, verifying that manufacturers meet strict environmental sustainability standards and ensuring employers protect worker health and wellbeing.”
