The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. To meet the needs of company looking to verify the recycled content of our products and to verify responsible social environmental and chemical practices in their production, Yitai knitting also got the GRS certification. It covers processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of all products made with a minimum of 20% recycled material.

Although the GRS is owned by Textile Exchange, the range of products is not limited to textiles and can include any type of product containing recycled content materials.
The desired effect of GRS is to provide brands with a tool for more accurate labeling, to encourage innovation in the use of reclaimed materials, to establish more transparency in the supply chain, and to provide better information to consumers.
