The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a certification for products with recycled content. It is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. The goal of the GRS is to increase use of recycled materials in products and reduce the harmful social and environmental impacts of production.
