What is Cradle to Cradle?
Cradle to Cradle was initiated in 1992 by William McDonough and Dr. Michael Braungart and focuses on considering materials as biological or technical nutrients and their use periods and their evolution.
The Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard provides designers and manufacturers with criteria and requirements for continually improving what products are made of and how they are made.
In 2010, the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute was created to administer the certification system and methodology.
A Cradle to Cradle Certified mark provides consumers, regulators, employees, and industry peers with a clear, visible, and tangible validation of a manufacturer’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and to their communities.
