GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria right throughout the supply chain and production process.
It has very strict criteria and ensures clothing that states it is organic, is in fact certified organic. The certification also ensures that the standard in which the items are manufactured are at a high standard in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.

All LNSquared T-shirts are screen printed by hand in the UK, using high quality, durable water-based inks. Their screen printers aim to be as environmentally friendly and ethical as possible and always look for ways to provide products and services that have a minimal impact on the environment. By only using water based inks, they don't contain any harmful chemicals or solvents that damage the waterways and environment.
BRANDING AND PACKAGING
All elements of the LNSquared brand is consciously thought through to have as low an impact on the environment as possible and this doesn't stop with the branding and packaging.
Rather than producing new swing tags for their products they have sourced off cuts of leather from a local furniture maker and hand stamped these to create unique swing tags for their t-shirts.
The t-shirts are then packaged in recycled and recyclable cardboard tubes from a manufacturer here in England.
LNSquared hope that people will reuse the cardboard tubes and the ideas are endless, use them as pen holders, utensil holders, as a vase for artificial or dried flowers or even in the shed for tools or screws.
They also hope people will reuse the leather swing tags as luggage tags or gift tags.
LNSquared is a brand making it's mark by being as low impact as possible!
