Design: Green Card

Posted on by inaka

In all aspects of our business, we try to create a built environment that is socially, environmentally and economically responsible.

  • employee transportation to work: we walk!
  • heating bills: our studio always has the fanciest firewood and birchbark to burn as waste and/or uses renewable clean electricity
  • community involvement: see What’s New: Interesting Stuff: School’s Out

Our products can help achieve the following LEED credits:
Material & Resources (MR)
Credit 3: Resource Re-use (salvaged products that were re-configured)
Credit 4.1: Recycled Content: 10% (1 Point)

Credit 5.1: Regional Materials: 10% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured (1 Point)
Credit 5.2: Regional Materials: 20% Extracted, Processed & Manufactured (1 Additional Point)

Our finish has no VOC emissions and has LEED verification in the following categories:
Material & Resources (MR)
Credit 6: Rapidly Renewable Materials (1 Point)
Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ)
Credit 4.2: Low-Emitting Adhesives and Sealants (1 Point)

Any antler products would qualify for:
