Organic in conversion story

GOTS supports organic in conversion! Using the GOTS label grade 'organic in conversion' means to encourage agricultural practices that are transitioning from conventional to organic farming.

Angelina Wolf from Gruene Erde talks about their experience with using organic in conversion fibres and the GOTS in conversion label.??

How did you become aware of organic in conversion??

We design everything ourselves and have the designs manufactured in Turkey, Portugal and Latin America. We work closely with our suppliers when it comes to choosing our high-quality materials. That´s how we became aware of the possibility to use ‘organic in conversion’ fibres as alternative to organic fibres, whereby we also support the transition from ‘conventional’ to organic agriculture. 




Why do you support organic in conversion??

Organic farming is very close to our heart and using organic fibres is a minimum requirement for our products. It is therefore also a vision of ours, to support more and more farmers in their transition to organic farming, to set out the path for a sustainable future. By using ‘organic in conversion’ fibres we can support farmers along their journey to organic. It also increases the range of our GOTS certified products. Our annual residue tests assure that our consumers no longer run the risk to get in contact with pesticides from times before we used organic materials.
