What are Green Materials?

Green materials consider not only the carbon life cycle, or the water use but also what practices they promote such as low-waste manufacturing processes, and even how they will affect the health of the workers who install them.

What are Rapidly Renewable Materials?

These are non-petroleum based building materials that can be grown and harvested quickly, with minimal impact on the environment. They have harvest cycles of under ten years. For example bamboo or straw.

What are VOCs?

VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds, and are a set of additives that have damaging effects on human health. At ecocentric we don’t believe that anyone’s should be comprised by our designs. Ever.

What is FSC certified wood?

FSC stands for Forestry Stewardship Council, and they are an organisation that has developed a set of criteria for assessing how sustainable a forestry operation is. FSC certified wood contributes far less to typical forestry environmental issues.
