Green building products are primarily composed of material from renewable or recyclable resources. The FSC-Forest Stewardship Council and the USGBC-U.S. Green Building Council are in the forefront of green construction. The LEED-Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-Green Building Rating System was developed by the USGBC and evaluates building projects based on five major areas considered to have a direct impact on human/environmental health. One of the LEED areas is material selection.
The standard criteria of “green” building products specify the use of materials that are durable, made by a resource efficient manufacturing process, have an identifiable recycled content, are recyclable themselves, and have low to no negative impact on environmental quality. We believe that Bedford Plastic Lumber is able to meet these material selection standards in a majority of applications.
