Der Grüne Knopf

TRIGEMA

TRIGEMA awarded with the "Grünen Knopf"

TRIGEMA has always produced sustainably and environmentally consciously. We conserve resources and do not pollute the environment. Everything you can buy from TRIGEMA is free of harmful substances and kind to your skin. Now you can rely even more on sustainably and fairly produced clothing. TRIGEMA is now certified with the "Grünen Knopf" seal.

Since September 2019, the "Grüne Knopf" has signalled to customers that this textile article is not only harmless to the environment - the people who produced it are also fairly paid and work under safe working conditions. This applies not only to our factories in the Swabian Alb, but also to the people working in the cotton fields in Greece and Turkey. That is where we source our cotton. Companies that can prove that they comply with the strict social and ecological requirements can get the "Grünen Knopf".

Who decides who gets the "Grünen Knopf"?

The "Grüne Knopf" is a state seal. The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) specifies what a textile company must ensure in order to be allowed to carry the seal. The requirements apply to the product and the company.

  • The product must comply with 26 minimum social and ecological standards. Among other things, it must have been produced in an environmentally friendly way.
  • The company must meet 20 criteria. Among other things, it must be ensured that employees are paid fairly and can work under safe working conditions.

Is there really a "Grüner Knopf" on my clothes?

No. The "Grüne Knopf" is not a real button attached to clothing. The "Grüne Knopf" is a seal printed on the label.

We donate two Euro of every sold shirt to the association Entwicklungshilfe Baden-Württemberg e.V. (VEBW). It supports poor rural women in the remote mountain regions of West Nepal. These regions are very rural, the agriculture yields only meagre yields. The main burden of cultivating the fields lies on the shoulders of the rural women. The donations are used to train the rural women in basic things. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator:

  • management of poor soils (analysis of soil conditions, introduction of new fruits and vegetables, etc.)
  • Care of extended families (support in hygiene and health, etc.)
  • promoting economic understanding (e.g. simple accounting, importance of revenue and expenditure controls)
  • Protection of nature

With this knowledge, rural women are able to earn their own money. Money that is also needed for the children's education.
