Cradle to Cradle® Certification
Cradle to Cradle® certification by MBDC assesses all the elements and the complete formulation of the human and environmental health impacts throughout the lifecycle of the product being evaluated. MBDC then determines the product's potential for being truly recycled or safely composted.
Certification of the finished product also requires the evaluation of energy-use quantity and quality (i.e., the relative proportion of renewable energy), water-use quantity, water-effluent quality and workplace ethics associated with manufacturing.
MechoShade Systems' Mecho/5 with EcoVeil is the first complete solar shading system to receive Silver Certification from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC). Mecho/5 is the fifth generation of MechoShade's flagship manual shading system.
EcoVeil, inspired by William McDonough and Michael Braungarts book, “Cradle to Cradle,” is a revolutionary, eco-effective solar shadecloth that can be reclaimed and recycled, and was the first product of its kind to be environmentally certified.
The Cradle to Cradle Silver certification from MBDC of the Mecho/5 system with EcoVeil has set a new industry standard for high quality and eco-friendly technology.
