G-Star Raw expands its efforts towards more sustainability by autumn 2020 and announces further products with Cradle to Cradle Gold status.

Circular Denim Icons
At the beginning of the year, the Dutch jeans brand launched the ‘Denim Icons’ collection, which G-Stars says is the most sustainable collection to date.

Six more sustainable denim styles with Cradle to Cradle Certified Gold status, made from organic cotton blended with a “sustainable stretch fiber”, will follow this autumn.
