GOTS wins civil action and urges greater FTC vigilance

Written by John Mowbray

WASHINGTON – In a move that highlights the problem of false organic cotton fibre claims on textiles, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has just won a US legal case against three companies, where it alleged the unauthorised use of the GOTS logo on sleeping mattresses. Subsequently, the organisation also urged the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to expressly acknowledge GOTS, refer to NOP’s Policy Memorandum on Textiles, and to monitor and enforce use of the term “organic” on textiles more closely in the USA.
