econscious, experts in supplying organic and sustainable apparel to brands worldwide, is excited to become the first and only United States supplier certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

GOTS is the highest and most comprehensive international standard for Organic textiles from farm to finished product. As brands align themselves with the green movement, both to satisfy the growing demand of conscious consumers and to align with their brand's core-values, many are turning to econscious' experts to streamline the time, expertise and resources required to ensure the organic status of their apparel.

econscious' President, Dale Denkensohn, helped lead Patagonia's conversion to organic cotton in the 1990's and is amongst the pioneers of organic and sustainable manufacturing. According to Mr. Denkensohn, "Our goal is to be the most trusted source for organic and sustainable blank apparel and accessories." Denkensohn continues, "The GOTS certification is a hallmark achievement. It helps position econscious to make a larger impact towards a better future by guaranteeing piece of mind to the growing market of conscientious consumers."

The GOTS certification ensures that the entire manufacturing process adheres to a strict set of standards, including criteria such as types of dyes allowed, types of closures and hardware use, substances prohibited in manufacturing, and the treatment of waste water. GOTS also includes important social components to ensure living wages are paid and a safe, hygienic work environment is provided.

econscious has over two decades of experience in supplying organic and sustainable apparel and accessories to brands worldwide. econscious offers a comprehensive line of organic and sustainable Tees, Fleece, Hats, Beanies, Bags and custom private label soft-goods. econscious helps other companies become more sustainable by supplying manufacturers with blank, private label apparel and accessories. One-percent of econscious' sales supports environmental causes. December's one-percent non-profit partner is the Santa Barbara Channelkeeper.
