  • Ecoprocote ~ soy-based paints, sealers and coatings that are environmentally compliant, non-hazardous and safe.
  • EcoTimber Flooring ~ wide range of domestic and exotic hardwood and bamboo flooring, including prefinished engineered and floating floor, made from sustainably harvested and reclaimed wood products.
  • Mythic Paints ~ non-toxic, ultra-low odor paint that provides the durability and coverage expected from a premium paint without the off-gassing VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and cancer-causing toxins that emit years after drying.
  • Nature's Carpet ~ uses natural, biodegradable high-quality wool shorn from sheep raised without herbicides or pesticides; natural jute backings; and natural bonding agents from renewable resources. The result is an ultra-low toxicity floor covering which actually improves indoor air quality for health and comfort.
  • RainTech Rain Tube® ~ the first system to work with any roof/gutter combination to prevent gutter downspouts from clogging, while collecting rainwater at high volumes—even through heavy debris.
  • Rainwater HOG System ~ modular tanks used to catch and store rainwater for reuse in the home or garden.
  • Safecoat® Paints ~ environmentally-friendly paints and primers made without toxic ingredients, such as solvents, heavy metals, chemical residuals and formaldehyde.
