Today we have to care of our environment. For me there are to options to take into account : using yarn fabricated with taking care of the environment (GOTS label, or other reasons to believe there has been taken care of the environment.) and using yarn fabricated with taking care of human interests. (fair trade)
Using yarn fabricated with taking care of the environment
I learned that there is a certificate to indicate that yarn is made with taking care of the environment, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS).When products have this label you are sure that this products are exclusively made from certified organic sellers. See more on https://www.global-standard.org/the-standard.html.
Not alle yarn taking care of the environment has this GOTS label. There are also yarns that you just know it’s all right, for example there is the new yarn tencel http://tencel.com made of bamboo bark that grows back.
There is also to mention yarn made from recycled products.
Using yarn with taking care of human interests, fair trade
Fair trade is different to GOTS, fair trade includes that products are made with taking care of the environment. Fair trade also takes care of all human life.
I’m trying to sell more yarn taking this two factors into account, but it’s not always that easy.
