Shopping for Green Building Materials

Green building now encompasses a number of different building materials. methods, and  and techniques into one comprehensive group. LEED is the authorizing body which certifies which materials, processes, and products are the best in terms of performance and quality.

Many of the environmentally friendly products that are available for home and office renovation and construction projects are unique, and utilize materials that might otherwise end up in a landfill.  There are now a multitude of products that utilize resources like post-consumer paper, scrap metal, rubber, and glass. Not only to these products do good for the environment but they also look good in your home or office. Many of these new, innovative products are equally as durable as their less-environmentally friendly predecessors and in terms of cost are reasonably comparable.

Determine which products are truly “green” and not just marketed to consumers as green takes a bit of research. If you don’t have a specific green building supply store in your area take some time to research products online to make sure you’re getting the best value for your dollar.
