The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) is a product standard that keeps a check on the composition of products made from recycled materials. Specific product requirements are also attached to the seal.

The seal was created in 2008 under the umbrella of the Control Union Certifications, but has been owned by Textile Exchange since 2011. The standard is regularly reviewed by a large stakeholder group that includes retailers, brands, distributors and other industry members.

The list of guidelines has been changed multiple times over the past several years, and there are always new requirements to meet.

The GRS label may be used with final products, such as clothing or household textiles, if they contain a minimum of 20% recycled materials. In addition, the GRS includes guidelines on environmental protection and social standards companies must follow.
