As part of the Heimtextil Summer Special trade fair, we presented our labels for certifying home textiles and explained how the Blue Angel contributes to circular textiles. In addition, Dr. Kristin Stechemesser from the German Environment Agency also held a talk: The Blue Angel for textiles – make your textiles more circular with the state-approved ecolabel.

About the Blue Angel

The Blue Angel has been the ecolabel of the German federal government for more than 40 years and the guide for sustainable purchasing. It is an independent and credible label that sets stringent standards for environmentally friendly products and services. The Blue Angel guarantees that the products or services it certifies meet high standards when it comes to its environmental, health and performance characteristics. The whole life cycle of the product or service is always taken into account in the assessment process. Criteria are developed for each product group and must be complied with by those products and services holding the Blue Angel. In order to reflect any technological developments, the German Environment Agency checks the criteria every three to four years. This ensures that companies are required to make their products even more environmentally friendly over time.
