Answers to most frequently asked questions
We collect technical and functional data on products we host, not just their green certification information. That means that you search for products by technical functional properties as well. Here is a real-world example: an Architect researching Formaldehyde-Free insulation to use in the walls for an interior application, and it has to be Greenguard Gold certified and has at least 20% Post-Consumer recycled content. Using these filter options in Effective Building, that Architect would have narrowed their search to 5 choices which they can choose to investigate deeper by looking at all the available Technical Documents like Spec sheets, brochures and specifications (where available) we aggregated and present in an easy to read product page. No more hopping around the web from site to site gathering pieces of information. We bring it all together so you can make an informed decision in minutes, not days.
