Zurich – Within a year, three members of the Circular Clothing Cooperative have launched over 30 new textile products on the market that are certified according to the Cradle to Cradle Certified standard. Lavie, STUNED and the Blue suit have also established a joint supply chain for this purpose.
Circular Clothing‘s cooperative members, lavie, STUNED and the Blue suit, have launched over 30 new certified garments, accessories and home textiles in the year since the Blue suit launched its first Cradle to Cradle Certified collection. Cradle to Cradle is the world’s leading standard for environmentally and socially responsible recyclability.
According to a Circular Clothing press release, this milestone was made possible thanks to a shared supply chain and access to recyclable materials and production processes. The Cradle to Cradle-certified black denim collection from the Blue suit from 2022 forms the starting point for the joint supply chain and certification.
A circular approach is needed to ensure that today’s products become tomorrow’s raw materials, and small companies in particular need support with this. They also received this from the Migros Pioneer Fund, the STF Swiss Textile College and the accredited Cradle to Cradle Certified assessor epeaswitzerland.
New trouser models from the Blue suit have all received the bronze award from Cradle to Cradle Certified, even though all materials meet the gold standard – except for the non-certified sewing thread, which the company chose for quality reasons. The capsule collection called Made to last by lavie, which consists of decorative cushions and cooking aprons made of Italian denim, has been awarded Cradle to Cradle Gold. STUNED has added new models to its collection of high-quality bags, all of which are made from Cradle to Cradle Gold components. ce/mm
