Carter’s, the largest U.S. retailer of baby clothes, is taking important steps to limit toxic chemicals in its supply chain and use sustainable fabrics - thanks to pressure from Green America and its members! 

Because of our Toxic Textiles campaign, in 2020, Carter's released a Restricted Substances List (RSL), disclosing information about energy usage and waste reduction, and providing greater transparency about efforts to protect human rights within its supply chain. 

Then, Carter's announced 100% of its cotton and polyester will be sustainable by 2030, including using organic cotton and recycled polyester. 

Nearly 15,000 consumers have joined Green America in calling on Carter’s to clean up its supply chain and release a Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), which would go a step further than an Restricted Substances List (which only protects consumers) by limiting harmful chemicals that workers and their communities are exposed to in the manufacturing process.
