USEFUL LINKS

There are several web sites dedicated to Green architecture and technology (see our links tab for examples). Some are dedicated to encouraging the construction of sustainable building, while others are dedicated to selling a specific technology, process, equipment or material. We must caution you that many manufacturers have jumped on the green band wagon in the recent years and are promoting their products as green, whether they are or not. For the most part, the products are 'greener' than in the past, but are not likely to be green enough to be sustainable.
