Self-described as a “full-service solutions system for the textile value chain”, Bluesign is trying to get rid of some of the dirtiest products and chemicals used in the textile industry. Replacing them for certified alternatives that are elaborated through sustainable chemistry is one of their main goals. A true Millennial, founded in the year 2000, Bluesign has focused ever since on going deep into the roots of the products’ elaboration, using a process they call input stream management, rather than testing the product in its final stage only. To be part of the Bluesign System, which also helps different stakeholders connect and work together under the same sustainable common goal, companies must comply with an established minimum of the Bluesign Criteria, which is evaluated by an in-site third party body of certification, or otherwise wait for a couple of years to re-apply.
