Agion antimicrobial earns Cradle to Cradle Gold

Aug '09
Agion, the worldwide leader in natural silver-based antimicrobial technologies, has become the first antimicrobial technology to earn the prestigious Gold Level Cradle to CradleSM environmental certification. The award solidifies Agion's position as the preferred antimicrobial for green initiatives.

Cradle to Cradle certification recognizes companies that adopt renewable energy and energy efficiency, efficient use of water, environmentally safe materials, recycling or composting, and other criteria. Agion earned Silver Level certification last year and strengthened its environmental processes this year to achieve Gold Level.

“We're honored by this environmental stamp of approval for Agion,” said Cyndy Hunter, director of marketing for Agion Technologies. “Achieving Gold Level Cradle to Cradle Certification is further proof that Agion's naturally-based, non-toxic antimicrobial technology truly is a green alternative to synthetic chemicals.”

Agion is based on naturally-occurring silver, “Nature's antimicrobial.” Silver has been used to suppress the growth of microbes for thousands of years and is used today in many industries including healthcare, consumer, food, water and industrial. Agion's technology is built directly into products, enabling a self-cleaning surface that provides continuous protection from microbes and remains effective for the life of the product.

Cradle to Cradle certification gives companies a way to tangibly measure achievement in environmentally-intelligent design and helps customers buy products that adhere to a broader definition of quality. The trend is gaining ground. Wal-Mart, for example, recently announced a system that will rate products based on how environmentally and socially sustainable they are. Cradle to Cradle is a service mark of MBDC.
