    Hi Brett,
    We are actually thinking about compiling a directory for green products and services, but in the meantime, you could check out independent organizations that certify products that meet green standards, like: GreenGuard, GreenSeal, Scientific Certification Systems, Forest Stewardship Council, and others. The green guide ecolist is very helpful. Here’s that link: http://www.interiorsandsources.com/articles/detail.aspx?contentID=4744

    Keep in mind that not all green products are officially certified. You could also do an online search for specific green products to find suppliers. Other good resources are local green home stores which are popping up all over the country. Some good web resources include: U.S. Green Building Council (usgbc.org), BuildingGreen.com and RateItGreen.com.

    Hope that helps!
