Thinking “green”

April 7, 2009

 

Thinking “green” when everything was “white” was a stretch in February when I started reading about all things “green” but its April and the white stuff is still falling while I am finally writing “green”.   Using sustainable products can be great for the environment and ultimately cut costs.    More and more manufacturers, and the designers and contractors that use their products, are responding to the consumers demand to be more environmentally responsible.

Kitchen and Bath’s trend prediction for 2009 was a push to use “environmentally sensitive materials such as lead-free glass, materials made with recycled content and water conserving faucets”;  “There are more and more products coming on the market all the time – from pressed paper countertops to denim insulation.”
