Resources for Recycled Content products and materials

Finding green materials and resources for innovation starts with thinking of new sources and new applications for established green and recycled materials.

I had a call today from an inventor who was searching for "green" materials to help him develop his product sustainably. And it made me think... and as I searched for some resources for him I came across these resources.

Deconstructed Materials

Decon-Network: LOS ANGELES & ORANGE COUNTY Deconstruction & ReUse Network strongly supports the green building movement by advancing the general environmental principal of "reduce, reuse and recycle" within the construction and demolition (C&D) industries.

Lorenz Schilling founded Deconstruction & Building Materials ReUse Network, Inc. (Deconstruction & ReUse Network), an environmental and humanitarian nonprofit, that supports California’s green building movement by advancing the general environmental principal of "reduce, reuse and recycle" within the construction and demolition (C&D) industries. As President, Schilling works with homeowners, building professionals, other non-profits and local government to create waste management solutions and to help implement deconstruction practices, as well as, likeminded businesses and organizations endeavoring to reuse.

D&C - demolition and construction waste is the major contributor to landfills and the reuse of these materials is a major improvement in decreasing use of virgin materials, as well as reducing the waste that gives off methane and other greenhouse gases in landfills that last hundreds if not thousands of years.

Mother Earth Living's guide to Eco-Friendly Countertops

Sustainable Countertops This guide provides a list of sustainable countertop materials such as Sorghum Stalks; Sunflower seed hulls, Wheatboard, Recycled Aluminum and Recycled Glass -- as well as manufacturers of these more sustainable materials that could be used for countertops -- or innovative green product development and innovation.


Creative use of materials push the boundaries of market niches for manufacturers who have innovated materials. Designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and investors can all benefit from creative thinking about cross referencing materials with outcomes when they are designing their new products.

If you have specific needs and need a creative visit to explore possibilities, call Carolyn Allen, our editor -- her many years of writing about green and sustainable business as well as her own creative endeavors help explore new options that could make your products more sustainable.
