Green or greenwashed? With the growth in the green building sector it is more important than ever to be truthful about the materials we are using. We can’t rely completely on certification. To uncover the truth we need to do most of the research ourselves. Let’s stop greenwashing in its tracks and share our findings with the manufacturers so they can improve their products.
