  26. 26. Class 8 V5018 Cradle to Cradle: Closed Loop Systems UCLA Extension Certifications US Department of Agriculture Organic Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.

  28. 28. Class 8 V5018 Cradle to Cradle: Closed Loop Systems UCLA Extension UCLA Extension Winter 2010 Profile Presentations 3 – Certifications & Labels Profile Project 3 Instructor Information Kevin O’Donnell, fundamentalist and founder @ threadcollaborative contact: teaching@threadcollaborative.com Project Overview There currently exists no authoritative definition for green, sustainable, eco, environmentally favorable, or any other term being used to describe products that are supposed to be better for the environment. That void is being filled with government, NGO, and third part certification enterprises attempting mark their territory. It leaves the consumer in a vulnerable position when trying to navigate all the certifications and labels vying for attention and credibility in the market. Students will be asked to select a certification/label system, perform research, and deliver their findings in a report format of their choice. Suggested Certifications & Labels No two students may research the same certification/label. They will be chosen on a “first come, first served” basis. The earlier you select your certification/label, the better. The following are suggestions for potential certifications/ labels: • UL • B Corporation • FDA • ANSI • GreenGuard • Energy Star • LEED • SCS • FSC • Green Seal • MSC • WaterSense • SFI • Fair Trade • Green Globe • SMaRT • Cradle to Cradle • USDA Organic • FloorScore • BioPreferred Feel free to suggest or select your own. Critical Dates The following dates are important to keep in mind: • March 6, 2010: students must select certification/label • March 11, 2010: research report due Presentation Requirements • Students must prepare a printed or digital report documenting research findings. • Research material should include history, development of use, context, reasons for increased use, key figures, key advancements that changed the certification/label use, and more. • Style, method, and report form are to be determined by each student. Grading Criteria • Depth of research and exploration. • Demonstration of specific knowledge about the certification/label.
