Did you know . . .

Did you know the Outdoor Industry Association has a Sustainability/Eco Index  ? The Eco Index is an Outdoor Industry environmental assessment tool intended to be used by companies to incorporate environmental considerations into product design and to manage their supply chains in a way that supports their environmental goals. The Eco Index contains guidelines, indicators and metrics that include End of Life Management.

Design for End of Life (EOL)
␣ Integrate EOL considerations into the design standard starting with product
conceptualizations and continuing through the product creation process and lifecycle.
␣ Design products and select materials that:
␣    Can be reused, refilled or repurposed.

Can be recycled, preferably upcycled, using commonly available infrastructure.
␣    Can generate commodities at the end of life that have a financial value.
