MOM’s Organic Market now requires all organic textiles sold in its 14 stores to be GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. GOTS defines strict environmental and social criteria along the entire supply chain for textiles with an organic designation. To coincide with this policy, MOM’s has launched a campaign, Cotton’s Dirty Laundry, to highlight the environmental challenges of the conventional textile industry. On January 23, MOM’s stores provided complimentary GOTS certified socks to customers while supplies lasted. The GOTS certified organic items carried at MOM’s include clothing and mattresses.
