Consumer

As a consumer, you are often lost when it comes to buying sustainable and fair products.

Where can you find products that meet these criteria and how do you find your way through this jungle of labels and ingredient lists?

The Gringgo Portal offers insight.

Provider

In the digital age, many companies face the challenge of selling online.

But not everyone has the funds, time or human resources to do so.

For others their main focus is still on reinventing themselves and developing their business sustainably.

If you recognize yourself in this description, do not hesitate to contact Gringgo.

Would you like to become a Gringgo?

In order to be permitted on the platform, our suppliers must act in accordance with the principles of the cooperative.

Gringgo evaluates suppliers based on a catalog of ethical and sustainable criteria and awards Gringgo stars for each category achieved.

At least 2 stars must be reached. This is to ensure that the consumer's money goes to a regional company trading in a responsible way.

This evaluation system should also be an incentive for companies to try to improve themselves in various aspects in order to earn any additional stars.

Product labels

Labels on which Gringgo focuses on when selecting products:

To allow the responsible consumer to buy all offers on Gringgo.lu without hesitation, Gringgo ensures in advance that the products are awarded with recognized labels or that they are produced fairly and locally (eg upcycling). This process is progressive and always leaves room for open discussion when selecting products.

Secondary Product Labels

Gringgo also encourages the presence of the following product labels but in most cases only in combination with one of the stronger labels listed above.

Example: The "OEKO-TEX" label is not sufficient because it is a label that assesses the manufacturing process and not the (bio) quality of the raw materials.

Gringgo therefore orients itself on the GOTS label. (Global Organic Textile Standard)
