Our latest outdoor collection, Australian Botanicals Outdoor, is certified Cradle-to-Cradle™. Read on to find out what that actually means...
Australian Botanicals Outdoor’s yarn is MBDC Cradle-to-Cradle™ silver certified, which means the materials can be perpetually circulated in closed loops. Made from post industrial waste and produced using environmental friendly manufacturing processes the yarns use a by-product from the petroleum refining process, reducing the use of virgin material.
The yarn production begins with the reclamation of material that would otherwise be incinerated, eliminating further contamination of the environment. This yarn requires substantially less energy to
manufacture and uses only a small amount of water during the process. Most importantly, it produces no harmful industrial waste.
After its long and useful life Australian Botanicals Outdoor fabrics can be sent back to the yarn manufacturer and inserted into a recycle stream. Both yarn and fabric can be safely and easily converted into inert resin pellets that are used in a myriad of products and industries, offsetting the need for the use of virgin plastic pellets.
