The C2C Products
Innovation Institute audited Libeco in 2014 to evaluate
how our raw materials, end product and post-use processing score
within the Cradle-to-Cradle philosophy. Based on the score for each
of the parameters*, Libeco received a "C2C Certified Silver Label"
which was awarded to all loomstate linen textiles.
Cradle-to-Cradle is a business
model designed to close material cycles. Essentially, the model
identifies goods that:
- are produced using sustainable
- are safe for human and
- can be recycled or can become a
raw material for other products after use.
This ensures that production of the
product "costs" society nothing and may even make a net
