Molo gets Oeko-Tex certified
As part of its long term strategy to further develop its sustainable production and products, Molo is pleased to announce that all of Molo’s iconic all over printed textiles in jersey will be, as of Spring/Summer 2016, certified in accordance with the global Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
Oeko-Tex is the world’s leading certification for textiles that are tested and approved based on the international Oeko-Tex organisation’s stringent demands regarding the chemical content of textiles, which harm, or are suspected of harming, the body. Molo has been certified in product class 1, which is the toughest product class since it concerns textiles that are used close to the body of children.
Molo’s CEO, Mogens Jepsen, says that Molo has wanted to be Oeko-Tex certified for a long time. He says, ”Responsibility is a value that is near to our hearts. Sustainability has long been a focus at Molo, but it is important for us to get the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification since it gives our customers confidence in the products that they are purchasing and assures them that these products never contain chemicals or other harmful substances that are detrimental to the health of their child.”
Molo’s all over printed jersey products make up a large part of the collections, and, as of December 2015, Molo’s customers can buy Oeko-Tex certified tops, t-shirts, leggings, dresses, under garments, accessories and blankets for both juniors and babies- all with a clear conscience.
”We don’t intend to stop there. We want to continue to contribute to responsible production, and we definitely intend to have more product groups certified in the future,” says CEO, Mogens Jepsen.
Molo strongly emphasises social responsibility to ensure a sustainable future. Molo works exclusively with certified suppliers, where 90% of them have been BSCI and/or Oeko-Tex certified. And about 95% of Molo’s technical outerwear suppliers are Bluesign certified. In addition, all Molo’s suppliers, as a natural part of their working partnership with Molo, must satisfy REACH rules that were created by the European Union in order to improve and secure personal health and environmental standards. Molo makes sure to avoid chemicals that are named in the EU’s observation list over potential problematic chemicals.
