GOTS Press Release +++ GOTS first Canadian roundtable takes participants behind the scenes

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is pleased to announce the inaugural GOTS roundtable at Seneca College in Toronto, Canada on October 5. Hosted by GOTS Representative in North America, Lori Wyman, this one-of-a-kind event is intended for textile industry professionals, members of the press, brand representatives, and other stakeholders, with the goal of both informing and educating attendees about GOTS and the certification process.

The full day event will begin with an introduction and overview of GOTS and case studies of certified companies. Sessions throughout the day will clarify who needs to be certified, what is involved throughout the processing chain of organic textile products, and the laws regarding organic textile labelling in Canada.

For the second half of the day, attendees will travel to the nearby GOTS certified entity, Fine Cotton Knitting Factory, for a tour of the facility. Wyman notes, “I am absolutely thrilled to host this event and take attendees on an in-depth exploration of GOTS. With our site visit, they will get a real look behind the label. With organic such a small but growing niche in the textile market, it is so important that we share this information with those who want to tap into the full potential of a GOTS certification”. The roundtable will take place immediately preceding the annual Wear Conference, the premiere forum on sustainable fashion in Canada.
