|Description:||Published by PatternMapping® institute and authored by green building materials specialist ml Robles, Better Buildings Guide is the only green building product resource that provides the user with the facts on what makes a product green, simply and directly. |
The bottom line for any green product is simple – it is the attributes that help them pollute less, use fewer virgin materials, or use less water or energy. These attributes are qualified by 3rd-party standards that establish performance requirements, or metrics, for products to be considered “green”. The Better Buildings Guide lists the available green standards for 23 of the most common and high impact building products in plain, easy-to-understand English so you have the bottom line on what makes a product green. We want buying green to be easy – for everybody.
