Event Description

The BlueGreen Alliance Foundation has a tool to help everyone from building professionals to consumers find energy efficient housing products that are healthy and made locally. Building Clean—found atwww.BuildingClean.org—offers an easy-to-use interface to access its one-of-a-kind database to help you identify products that meet customer demands and certification requirements for healthy, American-made, energy and water efficient products. The database includes more than 3,500 U.S. facilities manufacturing building products, which are searchable by categories such as product sector, state, material, CSI code, zip code radius, and others. The website can also be used to search for products with third-party health certifications and services that promote transparency about the chemicals contained in the products.
