Guides, Materials, and Green Links

There are a lot of sites and companies that are promoting green products and technologies. A lot of them just don't pass the smell test, either having a math problem, or mounting some sort of ad campaign to get you to think that they have been green since the beginning of time. Remodeling provides an opportunity to incorporate some of this stuff into your home. 

I have a few Green sites I have in my feed reader, and here are a few notable links over the past few days.

From Green by Design:

Paints Guide A excellent overview of current paints, with special attention to varieties and brands.

Lighting Guide Clears up a lot of clutter surrounding lighting.

From Greentech Media:
