Cradle to Cradle

  • Claim is a mix of third- and second-party verification, addresses multiple issues, and meets rigorous standards, but standards were developed without broad public participation.
  • Manufacturers must use materials that are safe for human health and the environment across their life cycles; design products and systems for material reutilization, such as recycling or composting; use renewable energy; make efficient use of water; use water of maximum quality for production; and develop company strategies for social responsibility (Cradle to Cradle ).
