New GBE Series Scheduled: Green Materials Report
This Friday reporter Dawn Killough will launch our new series, Green Materials Report. Her first subject: linoleum, a durable and sustainable product with an estimated lifespan of 40 years.
Some of our upcoming green materials reports will include:
- Bamboo flooring
- Wool carpet
- Recycled-content carpet
- Cork flooring
- Steel studs
- Beetle-kill pine
- Gabion rock walls
GBE is providing information on various building materials and what makes them green. Each post focuses on one material. We will be looking at the ingredients in the material, how it is used, what makes it green, and any green product certifications that it has earned. We hope to develop a database of information to help consumers make informed choices about what goes in their buildings.If you know of a material we should be reporting on, please let us know.
Enjoy the series!
