The structure includes multiple products that have a significant amount of postconsumer recycled content. Major green building programs tend to use 25 percent postconsumer recycled content as a threshold. Postindustrial recycled content tends to count toward overall content but to a lesser scale. Some more common examples of recycled content materials include masonry, paving stones or foundations with fly ash; aluminum gutters and downspouts; decking; drywall fibers, insulation and house wrap; vinyl plastics; countertops; and cabinets, interior doors or trim. More details are available on the Home Innovation Research Labs “Browse Green Certified Products” tool or on the LEED Environmentally Preferred Products credit table.
