We're continually filtering through the expanding green building products marketplace searching for great aesthetics and competitive pricing. This is a careful balance that architects, designers and builders have to strike on a daily basis. So we thought we'd help out.
We are continually learning, and we like to share. Our LEED Accredited Professionals (AP) assist designers and architects in product selection and guide builders and contractors in installing and understanding new materials in sustainable building.
We’re continually searching and stocking. Our portfolio is carefully cultivated, and our warehouse is stocked. The portfolio grows when the right products are uncovered, and the warehouse gets fuller with the new additions. We do this for the dual benefit of reducing transport-based carbon impact and getting your product to you quickly.
As the green building community evolves and grows, we want to do our part. We believe that being involved in any community deepens your connection to it. So we put that into practice in our green building community. We participate in professional organizations and accreditation bodies, including:
US Green Building Council (USGBC)
The USGBC works with members to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life.
American Institute of Archictects (AIA)
The AIA plays an active role in the continuing education of its members to maximize their professional skills through effective learning partnerships with firms, continuing education providers, and all AIA components. CaraGreen also plays an active role as an AIA CES Registered Provider. This means that we can come to your firm and provide educational content to architects and interior designers that will result in continuing education credits. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an AIA lunch and learn.
IDCEC, the Interior Design Continuing Education Council
IDCEC, the Interior Design Continuing Education Council, coordinates continuing education for leading interior design organizations like IIDA (International Interior Design Association) and ASID (American Society of Interior Designers). CaraGreen offers IDCEC accredited courses eligible for CEUs, helping promote their purpose of providing lifelong learning for interior designers.

Our eco-friendly products include sustainable countertops and other surfacing materials including cladding, as well as recycled insulation and acoustical products.
