Recycled materials in STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®

Oeko Tex Recycled

In times of climate change and raw material depletion, there is an increase in demand for fashion and textile products made from recycled materials.

Pugi Rg has decided to develop an approach to integrate recycled materials from production by certifying them with the new STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® Recycled Materials.

This uniform approach requires a minimum amount (20%) of recycled material in an article, different test programs depending on the origin of the material and the definition of the necessary basic information.

Recycled materials are difficult to certify as with their previous life cycle, they offer different challenges than “virgin” material. For this reason, they are treated differently within the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® and receive a special mention in the scope of the certificate.
