The Soil Association‘s label is the UK’s main leading certification mark. Usually associated with groceries and bath products. The Soil Association has seen a rise in accreditation in the garment industry when in 2003, the Soil Association began to certify textiles to the Global Organic Textiles Standards (GOTS).
The Soil Association’s label ensures consumers that they are buying a product that is free from pesticides and chemicals that have a massive, negative impact on the environment. It also ensures that sustainable farming practices have been adhered to.
