Currently, the eco-friendliness of stone paper has been evaluated by international expert entity as outlined below.
One must consider whether a material is “sustainable” in order to determine if it is eco-friendly. Stone Paper is the first to be awarded Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Certification in Taiwan. This certification includes standards in five categories including, material safety, recovery and recycling, energy usage, water usage and finally, social responsibility. If Stone Paper is not recyclable, non-sustainable, then this certification would not have been approved. Cradle to Grave (C2G) is a term used for material that cannot be recovered nor recycled. In contrast, Cradle to Cradle (C2C) is a term indicating the life cycle loop is a closed and continuous one, and thus sustainable.
