Removing Barriers to Healthy Materials

The Fashion Positive Revolving Fund loans suppliers cash at a below-market interest rate to support Cradle to Cradle certifications. The loan can be used to cover assessment costs for first-time certification or for improvements needed to achieve higher levels of certification.

The Fashion Positive Revolving Fund currently has a balance of €300,000, supported in part by the DOEN Foundation and The Schmidt Family Foundation.

The Revolving Fund committee prioritizes applicants based on the following criteria:

  • Impact: Potential for high volumes in global supply chains
  • Production capacity: Supplier has global technical support and regional distribution capabilities
  • Readiness for the Circular Economy: Material has potential to reach Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold level
  • Timeline: Pilot, small-scale commercial or commercial readiness alignment with the Call to Certification
