Global Recycled Standard

Recycled Content for both finished and intermediate products – Global Recycled Standard Certification

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling. GRS covers processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of all products made with a minimum of 20% recycled material. It also sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. – Global Recycled Standard Certification
The standard supports companies looking to verify the recycled content of their products as well as responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in the production of these products. Although the GRS is owned by Textile Exchange, the range of products is not limited to textiles and can include any type of product containing recycled content materials.

The desired effect of GRS is to provide brands with a tool for more accurate labelling, to encourage innovation in the use of reclaimed materials, to establish more transparency in the supply chain, and to provide better information to consumers. – Global Recycled Standard Certification

The goal of GRS is to increase use of Recycled materials in products and reduce or eliminate the harm caused by its production.
