Devoted selection AB produces products that are as ecological and sustainable as possible - since we believe that this is best both for people, especially children, and for nature.
Some of the ecological materials that we use are:
Ecological cotton: cotton that has been grown without pesticides - which is otherwise the case for 'ordinary cotton' where large amounts of pesticides are normally used. We mainly use fabrics and fillings that are certified according to GOTS - Global Organic Textile Standard. This standard includes the whole chain from farming, colouring, preparation and working conditions.

Ecological wool: wool from ecological sheep farms.
Oeko-Tex: a health-related certification made in order to guarantee that the product does not contain any substances that could be harmful to the end user. We always try to use materials that are GOTS-certified, but if this is not possible to find we use Oeko-Tex or similar. Oeko-Tex has no requirements concerning ecological issues, climate, functionality or quality - but all the same implies that the product has been tested concerning harmful substances which is very important concerning products aimed for children. Normally Oeko-Tex applies concerning textile products and accessories such as buttons and zippers.

When we send products to customers or resellers we always try to use either recycled paper boxes or e-commerce bags made of recycled plastic materials.
Right now we are trying to introduce new bags for our products made of textile ecological fabrics with Oeko-Tex certification, instead of using plastic bags. The new bags are all the same water-repellant, in order to protect the products from becoming damp during transportation.
We make quality products that should last a very long time, and we hope of course that our products will be used for a very long time! However, if you as a customer for some reason would like to return the product that you bought from us after the 'normal time for withdrawal' has ended, we volunteer to take the product back and try to either reuse the whole product or parts of it. In this case, please contact us at the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We try to keep our Co2 emissions as low as possible, through planning freight and transportation as well as using suppliers within Europe. The transportation and different travelling needs for our company we try to calculate and compensate by the use of Tricorona Climate Partner, www.tricorona.com
