Brentano ACT Facts Certified Textiles
In 2011, the Association of Contract Textiles (ACT) adopted NSF/ANSI 336 as its green standard. NSF/ANSI 336 is a textile-specific tool that measures the sustainability of a product and its manufacturing process against the following eight parameters. The standard recognizes products that reach Compliant, Silver, Gold, and Platinum levels of compliance across all categories.
- Fiber Sourcing
- Safety of Materials
- Water Conservation
- Water Quality
- Air Quality
- Recycling Practices in Manufacturing
- Social Accountability
While a first, second or third party may assess a product with NSF/ANSI 336, the Facts icon indicates that a textile has been evaluated through an independent third-party certification body authorized by ACT. This icon appears on all Brentano fabrics that are ACT Facts certified.
