Gast Home is committed to innovative green building materials, and this recycled plastic product is a great environmentally friendly solution. When materials are made with sustainability in mind, it means we live in a healthier world. Our recycled plastic products contain no formaldehyde and emits no VOCs.
The LEED Green Building Rating System, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, is a voluntary standard for developing environmentally responsible, low emission, high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED certification is for the entire construction project. Materials and products used in buildings are not individually certified. Through a rigorous process of third-party verification by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) the project earns points towards achieving a particular level of certification (Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum).
Because this product uses recycled content, they may qualify for numerous LEED points in the selected categories of Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and potentially Innovation in Design.
- MR 4.1/4.2: Recycled Content (1-2 points)
- MR 5.1/5.2: Regional Materials (2 points)
- MR 4.0
