KenDor Textiles offers recycled polyester products that are made from yarns that have achieved Gold Level Certification by Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
GRS provides verified support for the amount of recycled content in a yarn. It also provides a track-and-trace certification system that helps to ensure that the claim "a fabric is made from recycled polyester" can be officially verified.
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) addresses input material verification, chain of custody, environmental principles, social requirements, and labeling for textile products made from recycled materials. It aims to be a full-product standard for recycled material content that balances rigor and practicality for the industry and end consumers.
GRS requires that certified companies keep comprehensive records of their use of chemicals, energy, water consumption, and waste water treatment including the disposal of sludge. All prohibited chemicals listed in GOTS are also prohibited in the GRS. Beyond chemical and environmental considerations, GRS also includes extensive provisions related to workers rights.
