Green Building Materials for New York General Contractors

So The Green Depot just opened a store on the Bowery in Manhattan to showcase the best and most functional green building products and materials to New York General Contractors and homeowners.

The Green Depot is based in Brooklyn, NY and is already well established as a nationwide supplier of eco-friendly materials for construction and renovation. The Daily News just gave their new store a write-up this week:

Located at 222 Bowery between Prince and Spring Sts., the 3,500-square-foot
store contains hundreds of premium products, including a host of private label
and exclusive product lines. Addressing a growing need for affordable,
accessible, "green" products, the Bowery store marks the premiere of the
company`s proprietary product labeling system, developed to help consumers
navigate the changing landscape of green products through the use of a simple
icon system. The icon system is designed to clarify how and why a product can
claim it is "green", based upon five simple categories: air quality,
conservation, local, energy and responsibility.

What kind of stuff will you find at the store?

* Hundreds of premium products, including high-quality, appealing private
label lines developed via local manufacturing partnerships, in categories such
as cleaning, baby, and zero-VOC paint.

* Exclusive artist series featuring limited editions of inspired
sustainable design solutions developed by talented home designers.

* A resource and design center where trained Green Depot staff work with
customers to find green building materials that are cost-efficient and easily
adaptable into their construction or renovation projects.

* The first and only zero-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint bar in New
York City.

* A baby section that empowers new mothers with the basic tools and
knowledge to design and build a healthy environment for their children.

* A "Found" section, where the most innovative new green products are
displayed for purchase, along with select vintage and salvaged items.

This sounds really cool, we'll be checking the store out asap.
