Reduced environmental impact attributes can be found on the back of cards and are designated with a green edge in our binders.
Environmental regard is given to all aspects of our product beginning with material origins and ending with possible post-life impacts. As the benefits of sustainable products become more apparent, so do the prospects. What were once considered obstacles are now opportunities — ones we are excited to explore. Equally important to the products we develop are the actions we take. To this end, we have two LEED Accredited Professionals on staff to help guide our decisions. Mayer Fabrics continues to transform its product development and business practices to reflect positive environmental choices every day.

MBDC cradle to cradle
Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM is a multi-attribute ecolabel administered by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation InstituteTM that assesses products for safety to human and environmental health, design for recyclability or compostability, and responsible manufacturing processes. For more information about the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, visit http://www.C2Ccertified.org.
A certified product must meet requirements in five categories:
— MaterialHealth (impact on human & environmental health)
— Material Reutilization (recyclability or compostability)
— Renewable Energy Use
— Water Stewardship
— Social Responsibility
Levels of Certification:
Products can be certified at four levels (Basic, Silver, Gold or Platinum) to reflect a progression of achievements. At each level, the product must meet the criteria for that level in all five categories.
Polyurethanes are used as an alternative to PVC based faux leathers for several reasons:
PU’s will decompose over time, whereas PVC is environmentally indestructible and will eventually end up in land fills.
PU is incinerable, whereas vinyl and can release hydrochloric acid and other toxic compounds when burned.
PU’s typically contain a significantly lower level of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) than PVC, resulting in improved indoor air quality.
Many manufacturers of contract quality Polyurethane are as attentive to environmental stewardship, as they are to improving the long term performance of their products. The following are benefits particular to PU’s from the maker of Encore by The Symphony Collection:
BPA (Bisphenol A) Free
Lead & Heavy Metal Free
Energy Efficient Production
Water Efficient Production
99% of all Water and Raw Materials used in production is reclaimed and recycled.
