GOTS is the stringent voluntary international standard for the processing of organic fiber-containing products, addressing all the post-harvest processing stages (including spinning, knitting, weaving, dyeing and manufacturing). It includes both environmental and social provisions for post-farm to retail shelf management. Key provisions include a ban on the use of child labor, genetic engineering, heavy metals, and highly hazardous chemicals such as formaldehyde, while requiring living wages and strict wastewater treatment practices.
