UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABILITY AWARD WINNER INSTYLE NOW CERTIFIED TO THE EUROPEAN UNION’S EU FLOWER ECOLABEL



INSTYLE’s LIFE Textiles collection has now been certified to the European Union’s EU Flower Ecolabel - an ecolabel that you can genuinely trust.

LIFE Textiles is designed for the environment and the specification builds upon the EU Flower Ecolabel and Cradle to Cradle design principles.

The EU Flower Ecolabel-certified LIFE Textiles can be used on white and upholstered furniture certified to AFRDI (all levels), Ecospecifier (Level B + C), and GECA (Level A + B). Furniture certified to these standards will achieve maximum Green Star points (appropriate to the certification level), therefore all LIFE Textiles can be specified for Green Star projects.


INSTYLE is the first Australian textile supplier to achieve certification to this internationally recognised standard.
In 2011 INSTYLE won a NSW Government Green Globe Award and was a finalist in the Victorian Premier’s Sustainability Award, adding to its long list of major environmental awards.
