A recent recipient of GreenGuard certification for indoor air quality,
Meganite is a low-emission, 100% acrylic solid-surfacing material for countertops, vanities, bathroom walls, window sills, and more. Offering the look of stone, the nonporous surface will not promote or support bacteria or germ growth, the maker says, and resists stains and scratches.
To help reduce water waste, the
Leticia showerhead is just one of the maker's models of low-flow showerheads and handshowers. Advanced technology incorporates flow regulators instead of restrictors to keep water pressure strong. Showerheads and handshowers in the low-flow line distribute 1.75 gallons per minute, compared with 2.5 gpm for standard models.

strand-woven bamboo flooring is made of bamboo fibers compressed into strands under intense cold pressure, then bonded with a heat-sensitive low-VOC adhesive. All of the harvested bamboo is used during this process. The resulting “strand-woven” look offers a rich texture and unique graining on each finished piece. Available in either amber-coffee or natural-blond colorways, and a vertical or horizontal grain, the flooring is sealed on all sides and prefinished with an anti-scratch topcoat.

MicroPro preservative technology, used to treat the maker's
ProWood Micro treated lumber, has earned Green Cross recognition in being named an Environmentally Preferred Product by Scientific Certification Systems. To earn the third-party certification, a product must demonstrate reduced impact on human health and the environment when compared with other products in its category. ProWood Micro lumber is clean, odorless, nonstaining, and non-irritating to humans, animals, and plants, the maker says. The lumber comes from plentiful, fast-growing trees on managed forestland.
