Perfect for kids and adults alike, the Pendelton Eco-Wise wool blanket features a fabric that is richly colored and delightful to touch. Designed to leave the lightest impact on the earth, from the sheep to the shelf the Pendleton Eco-Wise Wool passes strict standards of sustainability and responsible environmental stewardship. Each blanket has been Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Silver certified and is made in the USA from 100% natural wool fiber that can also be composted.
Developed by architect William McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart, Cradle to Cradle design recognizes the complex, abundant processes of nature’s ecosystems, or ‘biological metabolism,‘ but also articulates a parallel ‘technical metabolism’ for human industry. Both metabolisms can be characterized by eco-effective, continuous flows of materials, energy and water, and whole-community mutualism. The Cradle to Cradle design framework moves beyond the goal of only reducing an organization’s negative impacts (eco-efficiency), to provide an engaging vision for executives and comprehensive strategies for managers to create a wholly positive footprint on the planet – environmental, social and economic (eco-effectiveness). The Cradle to Cradle philosophy can apply to anything from houses to companies and to consumer products as well.
