Abstract

While the green building materials industry has flourished, the labeling of green materials is disparate, confusing, and complex. Many certification programs are available for various products used in buildings such as Green Seal, Energy Star, the Carpet and Rug Institute green label, Blue Angel and many others [1-4]. Many labels, such as flammable and toxic, are often based on single criteria and may be required by law for a product [5]. Marketing schemes often involve product information with generic claims of environmentally safe, recyclable and biodegradable [6].
