“Our goal was to make a step-change toward safe, fully optimized chemistries, so we looked to certify a broad range of products used across multiple fabric types and applications,” said Jean Hegedus, sustainable business development director for The LYCRA Company, who states these certifications underscore the company’s commitment to both transparency and safety.
“For each product type, we had to disclose our ingredients to the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute; and our suppliers, in turn, had to disclose their ingredients for full transparency,” said Francis Mason, Ph.D., a senior research engineer at The LYCRA Company, who oversaw the project. “The products with Material Health Certificates come from all six of our LYCRA® fiber sites, so this recognition is truly global in scope.”
By specifying the fibers with Gold level Material Health Certificates, customers can be assured of transparency about the product’s ingredients and suppliers and The LYCRA Company’s commitment to continuously improving the sustainability profile of its products.
The move to expand safe, fully optimized chemistries is a key component of The LYCRA Company’s Planet Agenda platform for sustainability. Initially launched in 2008, Planet Agenda touches every aspect of The LYCRA Company’s business and is based on the belief that having a healthy business also means having a healthy planet.
