Cradle to Cradle (C2C) products are becoming more and more popular (thank goodness) and incorporate using recycled materials, helping us to get one step closer to being waste free. McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry, LLC. (known as MBDC) are the folks currently issuing C2C certificates for manufacturers of everything from roofing materials to baby products. You can view the list of current C2C certificate holders here. Certification criteria includes using safe and healthy materials; using water efficiently for production, and instituting socially responsible strategies. Hopefully, there will be thousands of products added to this list in the next 3-5 years.
By the way, in a previous post I mentioned Aveda's cap recycling program... I'm happy to report they are also on the C2C list and have received Gold certification for several of their products.Check out the YouTube Channel Cradle to Consumer for more products:
