With phrases such as “environmentally friendly” and “green products” being used to describe a large portion of the items we all buy nowadays, it can be difficult to know which products truly are good for the environment and which ones are just adding to all of the “green washing”. This is why customers in the construction industry as well as many others are now asking for manufacturers to be more transparent with their products from a full life circle “cradle to grave” point of view.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT DECLARATIONS:
Environmental Product Declarations or EPD’s for short are a third party verified and registered document that communicates the environmental impact of a product. Creating an EPD is voluntary and there are a few different versions depending on how much of the products life-cycle the manufacturer wants to disclose such as “Cradle to Gate” or “Cradle to Grave”, the later disclosing the full circle of a products life.
