Green building has become a popular choice for many families/business who are under new construction or remodeling.  To make the most of this you will need to do your research on the best practices and products.  Existing research online is significant, so to help get you started, here are a few things we found in our own efforts.

Some of Lindamood-Bell’s Practices:

Our current standard carpet is certified by the Green Label Plus program (mentioned in Greg Horn's book, Living Green).  

We are also using low VOC paint and researching the use of Chem-Dry for a nation carpet cleaning account, which is a non-toxic alternative to traditional steam cleaning.

Greenfully Yours,
