Cradle to Cradle Certified® is the global standard for products that are safe, circular and responsibly made.
Leading brands, retailers, designers and manufacturers across the value chain rely on the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard to ensure the impact of their products on people and the planet is a positive one.
Our Industrial Design students participated in a 3rd year Studio Design project that applied this gold standard to innovate and optimize materials and products according to the world’s most advanced science-based measures. These projects showcase how Industrial Design can help find solutions to the challenges of the future.
Participating students were required to identify appropriate topics, materials, and designs and flush out a business and Cradle to Cradle material reutilization cycle.
