WHAT IS CRADLE-TO-CRADLE GOLD CERTIFICATION?
A globally recognized measure of safer, more sustainable products made for the circular economy
Ensures products are made using chemicals that are as safe as possible for humans and the environment
The standard encourages continuous improvement over time by awarding certification on the basis of ascending levels of achievement and requiring certification renewal every two years.
Accoya is sustainably-sourced Radiata Pine treated by nontoxic acetylation. The chemical modification provides dimensional stability and durability that exceeds the best hardwoods.
Naturally Weathered Accoya
Over time, unfinished Accoya will develop a neutral, light gray appearance. This natural weathering process takes about 6 months depending on exposure and does not effect the quality of the wood.
