You will find the below mentioned certificates on our products.
GOTS – Global Organic Textile Standard is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can become GOTS certified. All chemical inputs such as dyestuffs and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria. The choice of accessories is limited in accordance with ecological aspects as well. A functional waste water treatment plant is mandatory for any wet-processing unit involved and all processors must comply with social criteria. The key criteria of GOTS, its quality assurance system and the principles of the review and revision procedure are summarised in this section.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. Find out here what STANDARD 100 means and why it is worth checking for this label when buying textiles.
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms. The test is conducted by independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes on the basis of our extensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog. In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements. The criteria catalog is updated at least once a year and expanded with new scientific knowledge or statutory requirements. It is not easy for manufacturers and customers to keep an overview of the legal situation concerning harmful substances every day. Our experts from the OEKO-TEX® institutes do this for you.

Vinter & Bloom strive to reduce as much plastic as possible from our packaging. We've decided to use biodegradable plastic bags, certified OK Compost. These bags are certified and compost only in industrial composting facilities.
All products labeled OK Compost are certified according to EN13432: 2000 and meet the requirements of the EU Packaging Directive (94/62 / EEC).
The plastic bags are sorted as food waste or household waste.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world. PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry.
The logo can be placed on tags and labels and on webpages of products made with all-vegan materials. Also to let customers know that they can shop there without worry, never having to question if any animals were harmed or killed for the products being sold.
Vinter & Bloom has a clear stance against troublesome animal handling. Our goal is for all our products to be environmentally friendly, chemical-free and that neither humans nor animals are harmed.
