Cradle to Cradle describes a circular system in which materials and nutrients are reused endlessly. Cradle to Cradle is a concept that sees waste as a resource. This means that it must be possible to reuse every raw material used to make a product. The principle is that the raw material must not lose any of its value when it is reused.
All Cradle to Cradle products from Socklab are designed with materials that can be endlessly reused or broken down harmlessly. The aim is for the products to be designed in such a way that no waste is created. If waste is created, this must be used as a resource to create a new product.
Cradle to Cradle is an international system for the development and certification of sustainable economic feasibility. Socklab therefore only works with suppliers who are also Cradle to Cradle Certified™.
The materials used are healthy, reusable and produced using sustainable energy. Choosing socks from Socklab means choosing to put people and the planet first.
In addition to the Cradle to Cradle Certified™ GOLD standard, all Socklab socks are also OEKO-TEX certified. This standard guarantees that our textile products are 100% safe. The certificate shows that our products do not contain any harmful substances. This means that not only are our socks produced ethically, they’re good for your skin and your health too.
In addition to the certificates above, Socklab holds a range of certificates and memberships through its parent company, Interloop. This is one way we work towards our company sustainability goals.
