Q:What is the difference between organic and certified organic clothing?
A:Great question; this is a topic that’s on a lot of people’s minds! On its own, “organic” means that an item was produced without the use of chemicals and pesticides. However, that’s technically a claim that anyone can make without having to prove it. “Certified organic” means an independent organization has validated that the item is organic, backing up the manufacturer’s claim.
When it comes to food, the USDA has standards of what is organic and what is not. But when it comes to clothing, there is no federal standard. However, there are a growing number of certifying bodies approving “organic” standards in various product categories, including clothing. The certification we’re most excited to find is GOTs – which is quickly becoming what most consider the highest standards.
Another issue to be aware of is to differentiate between whether an item is made from organic materials or if it’s all-organic. Oftentimes, the material used can be organic, but the dyes used to create patterns or colors – or in nontextiles provide other features like scents – are not necessarily organic or even natural . To a make sure you’re getting the purest product possible, look for certifications that clarify and differentiate among the materials (surface and at times stuffing) as well as dyes.
