Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS)
Nothing more than the bulky rules and code of practice have astounded a great number of customers who shop for natural mattresses. That is why the expression ‘natural mattresses’ is boring and without excitement. As a matter of fact, these bulky documentations are lengthy and could be likened to be another form of the sleeping dose that can further coax anyone who tries to make use of natural mattresses to sleep. Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS).
To begin with, over the years organic foods have been licensed into legal standards even though pressures from agribusiness usually prompt the standard. Nevertheless, most people have come to realize that organic food is far more preferable to foods that are made out of sprayed chemicals known as pesticides.
Occasionally, locally made goods that are not licensed and are grown by neighbors through the organic method tend to be of higher quality in comparison to foods from major producers that bear official organic labels on them. However the case, the two methods are healthy alternatives to foods that are packed by factory farm.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
Mattresses are not difficult to get along with, but this doesn’t mean there isn’t a national standard that comes with adequate and consistent testing at its production. In the United States, the national standard is just the direct and general requirement for mattresses. Away from adhering to what is necessary to the impediments of flames, during mattress production, some manufacturers delve into certifying themselves with other natural criteria or even buying several guarantees that are not designed for mattress material.
As a result of this, as far back as in the early year 2000, the Environmental Working Group has been made responsible for sustaining organic standards for textiles which entail fabrics and batting. Therefore, GOTS being an acronym for Global Organic Textile Standard is the pathway to the certification of Mattresses and bedding. To ensure adequacy, quality, and consistency, the benchmark for any certification often calls for yearly inspection of both the materials and the manufacturer. One of the models of GOTS-certified mattresses is the Savvy Rest’s Pastoral Mattress which have her material including the; wool batting, fabric casing, and manufacturing facilities all GOTS-certified.
Following the absence of the organic standard for latex foam sometime ago, it has been impossible for certifying organizations to adopt the GOTS standard over natural latex because the production of foam requires an entirely different method of textile production.
From the Plant to the Plant
Regarding the above absence, a newly certified platform from the Control Union is tagged ‘Global Organic Latex Standard, ’ and it is generally accessible as well as it is an international organization that certifies manufacturers and organic growers around the world.
Meanwhile, on certified organic farm in Kerala and India, the latex serum have been grown and harvested by natural latex manufacturers for the Talalay or Dunlop latex.
The year 2012 record a feat of success and achievement following the certification of our Dunlop supplier’s latex processing as organic to GOLS standard. Although, the GOLS seal is yet to become common as GOTS, but as the industry progresses, GOLS will also become a well-known and consulted standard.
