First Cradle to Cradle Platinum certified product is reclaimed Bark House shingle

“At Bark House, we have always taken a holistic approach to business, from the low impact of our product lines to the high impact of our social outreach.

The achievement of Platinum across each evaluation area further showcases the holistic, regenerative nature of our work.”
