Sustainable Industries‘ Top 10 Green Building Products guide is an annual publication profiling industry-leading green building products selected by a panel of expert judges and Sustainable Industries‘ editorial team.
EcoTimber Woven Recylced Poplar was selected from more than 100 entries based on environmental performance, scalability/market impact, innovativeness, design aesthetic, value and compatibility with the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.
The winners were announced in a Sustainable Industries Webinar featuring Associate Editor Charles Redell and members of the judges’ panel who addressed attendees’ questions about the pros and cons of the latest green building innovations.

“The Woven Recycled Poplar flooring represents a revolution in the flooring industry,” says Doug Foucault, Vice President of Product Development for EcoTimber, “it’s comprised of 100% post industrial scraps of poplar from the furniture industry that is combined with a proprietary process of resin infusion and high compression. This makes it not only the most environmentally friendly floor on the market but also extremely durable and extraordinarily beautiful. We believe that this new category of flooring represents a huge future potential for EcoTimber and our dealer partners and keeps us on the forefront of offering environmentally sound and yet uniquely stylish flooring choices.”
