Spotlight on great green products from GreenBuild 2010


Late November brought us the annual GreenBuild conference from the U.S. Green Building Council, a major event in the world of sustainable design and construction. Among the wealth of news and information that came out of the conference was a report from BuildingGreen on the top “green” products of 2010.

Here’s a quick run-down of many of them, as reported by our friends at Re-Nest:

FOAMGLAS: Foamglas is strong insulating material that is impermeable to water, resistant to termites and rodents, and is noncombustible

FSC-Certified Office Furniture by Knoll: Knoll is the only company with this level of commitment to eco-friendly furniture

Stealth Toilet by Niagra: It’s one of the quietest on the market and uses the least amount of water

The XICATO Spot Module: An LED alternative to halogen bulbs that produces high-quality light

Check out Re-Nest for the full report. With green-oriented design and construction on the rise — while traditional housing construction is still trending downward — we expect to see more and more of these and similar products in homes around the country.
