Got Green?

Got Green?

By:  Shannon Spence It seems as though it gets harder and harder to sift through “green” products these days. So many manufacturers make claims to their products contributing toward LEED points, being “eco-friendly”, or “sustainable”. There are some third party certifications that can help guide us, such as Cradle to Cradle or GreenGuard, but it can be difficult finding the right product for the right application. I found the BuildingGreen Webinar, Toxic Chemicals in Buildings: How to Find & Avoid the Worst Offenders to be helpful in understanding some of the terminology associated with many indoor products. Additionally, I discovered an awesome resource – Pharos –  for helping specifiers make educated decisions while selecting FF&E. I have not yet signed up for the paid subscription, but it looks like a great tool that I will bookmark for future reference.
