Cradle-to-Cradle Certified Products

List of C2C products made with safe and recyclable materials

Cradle-to-Cradle certification is a multi-attribute eco-label that assesses a product’s safety to humans and the environment and design for future life cycles. The program provides guidelines to help businesses implement the Cradle to Cradle framework, which focuses on using safe materials that can be disassembled and recycled as technical nutrients or composted as biological nutrients. Unlike single-attribute eco-labels, MBDC’s certification program takes a comprehensive approach to evaluating the sustainability of a product and the practices employed in manufacturing the product. The materials and manufacturing practices of each product are assessed in five categories: Material Health, Material Reutilization, Renewable Energy Use, Water Stewardship, and Social Responsibility.

This list includes a broad range of certified products including building materials, textiles, coatings, floor systems, daylighting systems, electrical accessories, glass, furniture and many others.
