Raw Material Assessment for Cradle to Cradle completed

AF&Y announced that it has received the results of its assessment for all raw components that make up its polypropylene yarns. The MBDC evaluation includes a comprehensive analysis of resin, pigment and additive concentrate formulations, as well as all finish ingredients.

From those findings, MBDC rates each ingredient green, yellow or red based on their impact to human and environmental health. Those that rate green or yellow are considered “approved.”

MBDC (McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry) was founded in 1995 by internationally recognized architect/designer William McDonough together with Prof. Michael Braungart, as a strategic environmental consulting and design firm, dedicated to revolutionizing the design of products and services worldwide using Cradle to Cradle design.

MBDC developed and offers the Cradle to Cradle Product Certification System that verifies manufacturers achievements using a series of environmental and social criteria. These criteria are based on the principles of Cradle to Cradle design, developed by McDonough and Braungart.

“The overall manufacturing process of our yarns is an environmentally friendly process, requiring much less heat, water and disposal resources in comparison to other yarns, but we chose to undergo an assessment so that we have independent, validated information on our products,” said Jim Morelli, AF&Y executive vice president of sales and marketing.

“This allows our customers, without compromise, to create fabrics that use safe materials. It also provides a way for consumers to understand what a true environmental benefit really is.”
