Trends in Green Home Building
Go behind the scenes at the Greenbuild Expo, where green-minded architects, contractors, designers, and manufacturers connect.
The Art of Recycling
This exhibit displays one of the most important themes of green building: recycling.
The greenest manufacturing practices are called “closed loop” or “cradle-to-cradle,” meaning that materials such as carpet are recycled, and then made into new carpet that itself can be recycled in the future. The goal is to put no new materials into the system.
This year's Greenbuild International Conference and Expo will be held November 19–21, 2008, in Boston. Find out more about the upcoming 2008 Greenbuild.
