Green Living > Building Materials & Supplies

Suppliers and installers who offer sustainable building materials. The selection of materials goes beyond the look and feel, but includes all the efforts that are required to bring the materials to service, and how these materials impact the environment after they are placed in service. Some of the considerations include:

  • Salvaged, refurbish material, material with high-recycled content
  • Resource that is abundant or rapidly renewable
  • Efficient process to prepare the material for service
  • Sourcing location
  • Low or non-toxic emission to preserve indoor air quality
  • Energy efficiency of the material
  • Long-term affordability

Architects and building contractors specialized in green buildings will be able to assist you with material selection.
