Oeko-Tex® Debuts New “Made in Green” Label

Switzerland-based Oeko-Tex® Association has introduced the “Made in Green by Oeko-Tex”
label, which replaces the Oeko-Tex Standard 100plus and “Made in Green by Aitex” labels. Oeko-Tex recently acquired rights to the “Made in Green” label and now is the exclusive issuer. The new label certifies
the textiles have been manufactured in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible manner.

“As a logical enhancement of our product portfolio, the ‘Made in Green by Oeko-Tex’ label offers companies in the textile industry the perfect tool for communicating to the consumer their commitment to sustainability directly on the product,”said Dr. Jean-Pierre Haug, secretary general, Oeko-Tex. “The basic difference and added value when compared to its predecessors, is in the transparency of the new ‘Made in Green by
Oeko-Tex’ label for the consumers.”
