WASHINGTON — The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), in conjunction with The Home Depot, has launched an online green home products database, according to a press release.
The database is a special microsite within HomeDepot.com that features products geared toward green home building, many of which may contribute towards earning LEED points, the release stated.
According to the release, more than 2,500 products sold at The Home Depot are currently listed on the website.
"The LEED green building program helps homeowners measure green home performance across a range of categories, and products play an important role in achieving certification," said Nate Kredich, vice president of residential development at USGBC.
"This database represents just one of the many ways in which The Home Depot is advancing sustainable, efficient and healthy homes by supporting green building and green products," Kredich added.
