Patcraft Introduces First Cradle to Cradle Gold Collection
Cartersville, GA, August 25, 2021-Patcraft has introduced its first Cradle to Cradle Certified Gold (V3.1) collection, Reverse.
A modular collection designed to reflect Patcraft’s commitment to and support of sustainable practices, the Reverse collection uses a carefully curated selection of materials to meet standards for sustainable products. A gold level certification signifies that this collection achieves even more rigorous performance standards for material health, product circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship, and social fairness.
The Reverse collection is constructed with EcoSolution Q100TM yarn, which is a yarn system that offers 100% post-industrial recycled content allocated from waste minimization and collection efforts. Using this yarn in conjunction with EcoWorx backing creates a lower, overall embodied carbon footprint for the product, which is reflected in the EC3 tool. Products are manufactured with EcoWorx backing, which can be recycled at the end of their useful life and made into more EcoWorx flooring through Patcraft’s re[TURN] Reclamation Program. The Reverse collection is carbon neutral through the purchase of verified carbon offsets, and it is manufactured in a carbon neutral manufacturing facility. Products are backed with limited lifetime warranties against stain, colorfastness to light, static and abrasive wear for maximum performance and appearance retention.
