The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is working in conjunction with The Home Depot to create an online green home products database. The green database will feature products from The Home Depot that will help homeowners take steps in becoming more environmentally conscious in their home.
“The LEED green building program helps homeowners measure green home performance across a range of categories, and products play an important role in achieving certification,” said Nate Kredich, vice president of Residential Development at USGBC. “This database represents just one of the many ways in which The Home Depot is advancing sustainable, efficient and healthy homes by supporting green building and green products.”
“As the world’s largest home improvement retailer, we want to show our customers that building green can be easy and affordable,” said Lindsay Chason, senior manager of Environmental Innovation at The Home Depot. “We have innovative, environmentally-friendly products that make LEED certification simpler. Now through our partnership with U.S. Green Building Council and their LEED for Homes program, we are simplifying the process of bringing healthier, greener homes to reality.”
Currently there are over 2,500 products on the website. To learn more about this green initiative or to make your home a little more “green” visit leed.homedepot.com.
