Is Green Passé?
When I saw this week's news from UL that it's now working on its sustainability standards for windows and doors what struck me most is the fact that we've had so few "green" headlines of late. With tax credits, Home Star and R-5, energy efficiency shows no signs of going away, but I started wondering if concerns about recycled content or certified forests were on the wane?
I thought I'd try to gain some insight with our poll question this week. Of course, I'd like to hear from you too. Is it "the economy, stupid" and people are just focused on dollars and cents issues–like energy efficiency–these days? Did "green" run its course as a marketing trend? Or are carbon footprints, sustainability and such just the way we do business now and less worthy of headlines? Email me and share your green thoughts.
