Weathertex has been recently added to the International Living Future Institute Declare Label database. Declare is a voluntary program aiming to transform the building materials industry towards healthier products. The labelling answers three important questions - Where does a product come from? What is it made of? Where does it go at the end of its life? Global GreenTag International have designed a Product Health Declaration (PhD) to assess chemical hazards of each ingredient throughout the product lifecycle, and the risk associated with exposure and handling. We have been assessed using this system in an attempt to be even more transparent with our customers in regards to the safety of our products.
