Is the DockATot organic?
We get this question a lot and the answer DockATot is not organic, but it’s something much better.
Although the term “organic” has much marketing appeal to new parents, just because a product is labeled “organic” doesn’t mean the product is safe. In many cases, it’s the raw materials (the yarn or the fibers) that hold the organic certification. This means that the final product has not necessarily been proven to comply and has not been tested for harmful residues.
DockATot has been certified Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class 1, which goes further than any other standard addressing the safety of textiles. Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used.
The Oeko-Tex® tests for harmful substances are fundamentally based on the respective purpose of the textiles and materials. When you buy a DockATot, it comes with the assurance that every single piece of it – fibers, fabrics, zippers, pulltabs, buckles, straps, sewing thread – comply with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class 1. All of the fabrics and threads and zippers and straps (anywhere we use colors) – has been tested after coming out of any dying and/or printing process.
All our suppliers of these materials are continuously audited and tested to maintain the badge. We would not have it any other way.
