The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is a nonprofit organization that was co-founded by William McDonough and Michael Braungart based on 30 years of work with industry. Its mission is to bring about a large-scale transformation in the way we make things. Through Cradle to Cradle certification, the Institute provides a continuous improvement quality standard to guide product manufacturers and designers toward making safe and healthy things for our world. Many thanks to Frank for the heads-up.
