First Cradle to Cradle Platinum Product
The first product to achieve C2C’s highest bar? Bark. Specifically Highland Craftsmen Inc Bark House shingle and wall panels. In the 2002 book Cradle to Cradle, William McDonough, FAIA, and Michael Banghart, Ph.D. envisioned our products and everything that goes into them as safe “nutrients” in ongoing technical and biological cycles. The C2C certification fleshed out their vision with five certification categories: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, social fairness.
