GoodWeave has been pioneering and innovating for almost 25 years, primarily in the carpet sector, a market-based certification system that is transferrable to other sectors based on authenticity, proximity, and transparency to someday realize its vision of a world free of child labor. The GoodWeave System is based on harnessing the power of the market, cleaning up supply chains, creating educational opportunities for children, and improving working conditions. GoodWeave drives impact by bringing visibility to global supply chains, giving voice to informal and marginalized workers, providing assurance that certified products are free of child labor, and restoring childhood to vulnerable children so they can laugh, learn, and play.
