So what exactly does this certification mean? Our organic wool items – 10 women’s styles and six men’s styles – were assessed by MBDC, the world’s foremost advisors in material health, product design and the Cradle to Cradle® Design Framework, using the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard. Those styles are made with our ultra-lightweight organic wool jersey in six low impact colors and silk thread.
And what does this product standard do? It guides designers and manufacturers through a highly in-depth evaluation of each product component and each stage of the supply chain in five environmental and social areas: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship and social fairness. Each of our organic wool products received an achievement level in each of these five categories.
