For those unfamiliar with GreenSpec, our editorial team searches out the top green building products on the market. We are an independent, subscription-based service that doesn't accept advertising, so we're untainted by manufacturer influences. As products editor at BuildingGreen and GreenSpec, I'm used to wandering the aisles on the Greenbuild expo floor looking for new products, but it too can be overwhelming, so every year we sort through the exhibitors and find those manufacturers already in GreenSpec (and by "we" I mean our own Martin Solomon). This year, Martin also tracked down those listed in the Healthy Building Network's (HBN) Pharos http://www.pharosproject.net product library. These manufacturers can be seen highlighted on the maps here (click the map images to download PDFs of both the North and South expo floors): GreenSpec-listed manufacturers are highlighted in light green, and Pharos with a "P." As you can see by the maps, not every exhibitor is in GreenSpec. Some of these manufacturers might offer fine products that just don't meet our high standards, but I hope to find some brand new, undiscovered game changers. This is why the expo floor at Greenbuild is particularly valuable: we get to see the products up close and talk with the manufacturers. There's something else new this year: the team has been working hard on a new GreenSpec with expanded portfolio and search capabilities and other exciting features. Please stop by and visit BuildingGreen at 434 North to try out these new features. Meanwhile, current subscribers can access our product listings here . Please stop by and visit BuildingGreen at 434 North or HBN at 5042 South, and I hope to see you on the expo floor! Brent Ehrlich is the products editor at BuildingGreen, Inc.
