Looking for a way to streamline your sustainable and healthy product research?

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute has launched a database where users can source healthy and environmentally friendly products. The database, called the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Registry, allows consumers, designers, and builders to make healthier decisions and calls for greater transparency from the manufacturer.

Over 200 certified products are eligible for LEED v4 credit, and more than 1,000 variations can be found using the new product registry. In order to earn the credit, project managers need to select 20 different Cradle to Cradle Certified products. The new registry makes this easy with over 1,000 variations to choose from within its search functions. There is also a new scorecard that lets manufacturers to display their certification, detailing each level of achievement in the five categories of certification optimization: material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.

"We are encouraging our certification holders to allow us to put up their scorecard, it lets stakeholders quickly see where manufacturers have done the hard work of continuously improving their product," said Bridgett Luther, president of the institute.
