goodsociety is actively involved in projects that protect and preserve our world, using only GOTS-certified finest quality organic cotton,whose farming standards are the most environmentally friendly and where attention is paid to both nature and working conditions.
Wherever possible, they use recycled materials for accessories such as buttons, labels, and tags. Only vegan materials, that do not contain animal products, are processed. The treatment of goodsociety’s garments is carried out largely without the use of chemicals. Otherwise, wherever possible, only GOTS-certified products are used.
It is equally important for them to compensate their CO2 "footprint". In cooperation with the internationally active environmental protection organization, Treedom, goodsociety supports reforestation projects which in turn increase CO2-absorption. This process counteracts the contamination of the air and the consequences of the greenhouse effect.
All corporate areas are considered: In addition to the existing supply chain – from raw material extraction through each step of their production to packaging and transportation – they take account of their office equipment, travel, and energy use. It is their aim as a company - as is with their social commitment - to follow and imply those values that create more balance on a global level.
95% of all materials they use are manufactured in Italy. 100% of their products are made in Italy: The fabrics are woven, dyed, finished, and processed by local businesses. Latest technologies reduce water consumption and the use of chemicals to a minimum. Short transport distances do not only decrease CO2 emissions, but also allow and encourage personal contact with their partners and ensure a direct insight into all stages of production. The transparency and continuous monitoring of the quality and ethical standards allows their customers to obtain comprehensive information about the manufacturing of their goods at any stage.
Their organic cotton holds the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certification. They do not use pesticide-intensive or genetically-modified cotton crops. Their partners from India, Pakistan, and Turkey share and guarantee their code of conduct of caring for environmental and individual health.
International organic standards require their producers to use organic agricultural methods and materials that minds soil fertility, the application of manure, crop rotation and composting as well as for providing a sustainable use of resources, the highest cotton fibre quality and upholding humane work ethics.
Thoughtful and ethical from start to finish, goodsociety jeans will make you look good, inside and out.
