Fairtrade USA. We are excited to offer clothing that’s part of the Fair Trade Certified program by Fair Trade USA, the leading certifier of fair trade products in the United States. While they have certified coffee, tea, and other commodities for many years, clothing certification is a new initiative. Because apparel production is so complex – from farm to knitting mill to sewing facilities to components suppliers – only a tiny handful of facilities around the world have earned this certification. We are proud to offer fair trade certified men’s organic t-shirts and are working with other suppliers to achieve this certification on more styles.
Green America. Green America is a non-profit organization based in the United States that promotes ethical consumerism by helping responsible consumers and green businesses find each other. The Green America Approved seal is given to applicant businesses that operate in ways that support workers, communities, and protect the environment. We are proud to be a certified member.

Oeko-Tex Harmful Substance Certification. An independent, third-party auditor that offers certification for textiles, limiting the use of certain harmful chemicals and known carcinogens. The certification process includes thorough testing on over 100 harmful chemicals including lead, pesticides, arsenic, formaldehyde, and heavy metals that are harmful to people and the environment. Oeko-tex certified dyes are used on all of our products with the Fair Indigo Women's and Joobles brand names. Learn more.
Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau is a non-profit organization that works with businesses and consumers to set high standards of conduct in the marketplace. The BBB seal is a trusted symbol of excellence in how businesses should treat the public – with fairness and honesty. Fair Indigo is proud to earn an A+ rating from BBB. Learn more.
Organic Certification. We are currently working to have our Fair Indigo products certified to Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which addresses the environmental and social processing stage of making organic apparel and textile products. While our cotton is already certified organic, we are now working to certify the remaining steps of production, and hope to be certified in 2016.
