April 30, 2013 /3BL Media/ - As the first cruise line AIDA Cruises has begun to gradually equip their ships with carpeted floors, the "cradle-to-cradle" certified are. These were first laid on AIDAaura during the shipyard period from 18 to 28 April 2013. Next AIDAcara AIDAvita and be equipped with the sustainably produced carpets. , the new "cradle-to-cradle" carpet tiles are safe from manufacturing to recycling. They contain no ingredients or substances that release harmful substances in processing or use. Manufactured from eco-friendly and recyclable materials carpet tiles are recycled after their use in biological or technical cycles. This is also true for the 1,800 square meters of the old carpet on Aida Aura, which has now been replaced. This is recycled and used as a high calorific fuel for cement production. A significant part of the corporate philosophy of AIDA Cruises is the most efficient way to use resources. This means in practice that the cruise line when shopping, wherever possible, zurückzugreift on products that can be traced back to their use in technical or biological cycles. This approach is based on the so-called "cradle-to-cradle" principle.That is, products are no longer disposed of after use on a landfill but recycled within a closed loop system. The materials used are thus in a closed circuit, without the loss of natural resources. Rostock, 30.04.2013
