Through the rebuilding of our catalog with standardized and custom products, Monmade will also bring increased transparency to our product labeling. With an emphasis on responsible production, sustainable materials, social equity, and local sourcing, we provide insight into the business practices of the artisans, makers, and manufacturers we work with everyday.
As a first step toward product transparency, Monmade highlights products that are designed to shape a greener, healthier environment through Declare.
Declare, a program of the International Living Future Institute (ILFI), is an ingredients label for building products paired with an online database of healthy materials for building project specifications. It allows manufacturers of ecologically sound products to demonstrate market leadership in the growing movement toward product transparency and health in the built environment and provides them an expanded point of entry into the world’s most groundbreaking sustainable building projects.
All published Declare labels can be viewed on the Declare Database, which is a free tool that allows project teams to easily search for products by manufacturer, CSI division, and declaration status.
Monmade products certified as Declare feature the “D” icon on our product pages and have complete labels available via downloadable tear sheets.
