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.
All of our C2C certified items are also certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), a similarly rigorous and complementary system.
