The BlueGreen Alliance Foundation today announced the addition of windows, doors, and skylights to its online tool to help building professionals find energy-efficient products that are healthy and made locally.  

Building Clean—found at www.buildingclean.org—offers an easy-to-use interface to access its one-of-a-kind database. Products and manufacturers of products available on the database include appliances, heating and air conditioning equipment, insulation, lighting, plumbing, roofing, sealants, water filtration, and now windows, doors, and skylights. 

“We’re excited that Building Clean continues to expand and allow designers, contractors, developers and manufacturers to supercharge efforts to find healthy, American-made products in a wide range of sectors,” said Lauren Asplen, director of the BlueGreen Alliance's Healthy Sustainability Program.  

Housing consumes more than 20 percent of U.S. energy. Building Clean is designed to make it easier for architects and designers, contractors, developers and manufacturers to find American-made, healthy products so they can capture the benefits of energy efficiency retrofits—including lower utility bills, improved occupant health, and increased economic development. 

“In addition to finding the products themselves, we provide useful information about the types of chemicals that can be found in products to educate users and help them find the healthiest options," Asplen said.
