Planet Reuse, Sourcing and Selling Green Materials

Planetreuse

Have recycled or reusable materials to sell?  Looking for recycled or reusable materials?  Need materials that contribute towards LEED MR credits?  Well, starting on or about March 17, you’re going to have a pretty nice looking resource to tap in the form of Planet Reuse.  Planet Reuse "aims to divert existing products and materials from landfills, create less waste and use of virgin materials entering the waste stream, and create a solution for designers, homeowners, architects and builders seeking to design, create, and use more environmentally responsible practices.

People that have materials can go to the website and create listing to sell the product.  Buyers can then search for materials by location and various other categories.  After Planet Reuse attracts critical mass and community participation, it’ll be a killer resource for LEED APs.  Great idea, Planet Reuse!

Emeco, a Classic in Eco Furniture Design

Emeco Emeco Emeco

Emeco* designs are simple, elegant, timeless, and award-winning, but did you know that their furniture is also super green?  Emeco furniture is hand-made from 80% recycled aluminum — half of which is post-consumer (soft drink cans) and the other half is post-industrial (manufacturing scrap).  Because of this, their furniture can contribute to LEED points in your green project (MR 4.2/5.1). 

The second thing that makes Emeco’s furniture so green is that their pieces are made to last for at least 150 years!  In this day of disposable furniture that lasts for maybe a decade, 150 years is an impressive lifespan.  Emeco’s designs come in two standard finishes, brushed and polished.
