Manufacturers submitted a comprehensive application for each product to BUILDING PRODUCTS magazine, and the entries were reviewed by a select panel of judges including builders, remodelers, and architects. Products were evaluated on their own merit, rather than in competition to other entries.
The second annual Green Product Awards will be featured in the Fall 2009 issue of BUILDING PRODUCTS magazine and on the magazine’s Web site, ebuild. com (http://www. ebuild. com). The winners also will be posted on ecohomemagazine. com (http://www. ecohomemagazine. com), a sister Web site to ebuild.
