Welspun, a leading home textiles manufacturer, has been awarded Made in Green label by Oeko-Tex, the consumer sustainability label that indicates that textiles have been tested for harmful substances & manufactured in eco-friendly & socially responsible facilities. Welspun is the first manufacturer in India to get the label for bed and bath textile products.

"Our Made in Green label is the result of our long-standing commitment to sustainability," said Dipali Goenka, Welspun chief executive officer. "Made in Green also supports our retailers in their efforts to offer more sustainable products to their consumers. The label clearly and quickly communicates to shoppers that our products have been tested for harmful substances and made with respect for our employees, communities, and planet."

To qualify for the Made in Green label by Oeko-Tex, Welspun products underwent thorough, independent testing according to the Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, which verifies that the textiles are free from dangerous levels of chemical substances. In addition, Welspun facilities were evaluated and certified to the STeP by Oeko-Tex standard that confirms that manufacturing processes comply with multiple guidelines for sustainable textile production.

"We applaud the sustainability commitment that Welspun has made with Made in Green," said George Dieners, Oeko-Tex general secretary. "Improving sustainability within the textile industry requires major manufacturers like Welspun to head the effort. Welspun's leadership will help influence others to join the industry’s efforts to make textiles safer for consumers, workers, and the environment."

The Made in Green label helps shoppers easily make the right choice for their families and their consciences. This label is traceable and transparent. Consumers can enter a product's unique ID code on the Made in Green website or scan the label’s QR code with their smart phones. These links will quickly authenticate the Made in Green label, an important benefit for busy shoppers, and provide visibility into every component of the production stream. (RR)
