Q: What Does “Green” Really Mean?

A: I have attended quite a number of conference presentations in the last few years regarding “green” products, design, and manufacturing practices.

I have concluded that there are two ways to look at green in the home industry.

First, certainly there are all natural products, wood, steel, stone, etc., as well as easily renewable products that can replace themselves on earth quickly. This includes wheat board, bamboo, and more.

But, there is another dimension to green friendly products. This green includes products which are synthetic in creation, such as plastics, but they reduce the emissions, and harmful effects that green products have on the environment.

Certainly both of these categories are important to being responsible with natural resources.
