10 LEED Strategies to Green Your Home

Make Your Materials Matter

Give careful thought to all the materials used to build (and decorate) your home. Use reclaimed wood whenever possible, and make sure any new wood is FSC-certified. Use recycled materials as much as you can. Choose products that emit few or no toxic gases, including low-VOC or VOC-free paints, primers, sealants, stains, and carpet and flooring adhesives, to improve indoor air quality.
