We are proud to have our shoes expertly and independently accredited for safety and sustainability by OEKO-TEX.
At Grow, we care about the environment, and we care about the quality of every single shoe we produce - right down to the fibres that make them. Toxins on textiles can be extremely detrimental to your health, those around you, and the environment. Therefore, it is vital that the materials and manufacturing processes used in product production are closely and carefully assessed for safety compliance.
At Grow, we are committed to being a part of the solution - not the problem. Our dedication to using safe and sustainable materials and processes is GOOD FOR EVERYONE! Our shoes are made of the good stuff. They are born good!
OEKO-TEX is a leading independent global testing and certification system for textile products. It was established in 1992 in response to the growing concern about the use of harmful substances in textile production.
But, at Grow, we are concerned about safety and sustainability more than ever before!
Our shoes have been certified with the STANDARD 100 OEKO-TEX label, which ensures they have been tested for harmful substances to protect your superstar. This label certifies that every component of the shoe, from the sole to the outer waterproof layer, has been rigorously tested to the highest standard. Each component is measured against a list of up to 350 toxic chemicals. This stringent approach ensures our shoes are free from toxic chemicals and safe for wear.
We believe in better.
All our processing stages have also been tested for harmful substances. We are proud to be fighting for safety and sustainability.
And the Earth says, ‘Oh, Yes!’
What’s more: Grow shoes have earned the MADE IN GREEN OEKO-TEX stamp of approval, which certifies that our shoes have been tested for harmful substances and have been made in environmentally friendly factories. This ensures safety for people and the planet! It also certifies that we prioritise ethical and safe working conditions for all our workers and pay them a fair wage. Unlike other companies, we are not exploiting poverty; instead, we are actively fighting to strengthen healthy labour practices. Our shoes are manufactured in Europe so we can control and monitor healthy working conditions.
We’re just not like everyone else. And you shouldn’t be either.
At Grow, we value transparency. The OEKO-TEX labels prove we are reaching the highest safety standards for your superstars, protecting the environment, and supporting our workers.
To stay at the forefront of sustainability and safety, OEKO-TEX regularly updates its strict standards and testing methods. This means our safety compliance is consistently updated and affirmed. We are keeping ahead of the game!
Grow shoes are both socially and environmentally responsible.
Our shoes have been independently tested for toxic chemicals to certify that they are safe, ethical and sustainable for the people and the planet. We produce the greenest black school shoes.
