Welspun has been awarded a Made In Green label by Oeko-Tex. This is a traceable consumer sustainability label that indicates that textiles have been tested for harmful substances and manufactured in environmentally and socially responsible facilities. Welspun, a manufacturer of home textiles, is the first Indian manufacturer to be awarded the Oeko-Tex for bed and bath textile products.
To qualify for the label, Welspun products underwent independent testing which verified the textiles are free from dangerous levels of chemical substances. In addition, Welspun facilities were evaluated and certified to the STeP by Oeko-Tex standard that confirms that manufacturing processes comply with multiple guidelines for sustainable textile production.
Made In Green is a label that is traceable and transparent. Consumers can enter a product’s unique ID code on the Made In Green website or scan the label’s QR code with their smart phones. These links will quickly authenticate the label, an important benefit for busy shoppers, and provide visibility into every component of the production stream.
The label supports retailers in their efforts to offer more sustainable products to consumers. The label clearly and quickly communicates to shoppers that the products have been tested for harmful substances and made with respect for employees, communities, and the planet.
