Product Challenge Overview

Official Rules

Certified Product Standard

Cradle to Cradle Certified & Make It Right

The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM Product Standard is a multi-attribute, continuous improvement methodology that provides a path to manufacturing healthy and sustainable products for our world. Because the standard rewards achievement in five categories and at five levels of certification, our certification represents the most comprehensive product certification available.

Cradle to Cradle principles are fundamental to Make It Right’s design process, building methods and product selection. Make It Right's homes are designed to produce more energy than they consume and to have a positive impact on the environment. Make It Right employs water stewardship strategies like pervious concrete and all of its homes and buildings are solar-powered. Make It Right also uses Cradle to Cradle Certified building materials like Shaw carpet and Cosentino countertops. We collaborate with communities to design buildings that meet their needs and respect the dignity of the residents.

Learning Laboratory

Make It Right will host a Q&A discussion about the Challenge on their online Learning Laboratory.  Make It Right’s Laboratory is a free online discussion site where people interested in sustainable, affordable design can learn, share and discuss the world of green construction. The Lab is a great place for homeowners, architects, contractors and developers to share projects, debate ideas and ask questions from leading professionals.
