Our Product Filter
All of the products Green Depot sells must pass through its proprietary green “filter,” a strict quality and values criteria focusing on: Health, Durability, Performance. Life cycle, Natural resource conservation, and Energy conservation. Green Depot’s rigorous Green Filter methodology vets prospective products for their environmental and safety attributes, and serves as the platform for Green Depot’s one-on-one “Flip It Green” client service. Green Depot’s “filter” sets us apart from other green building suppliers and retailers in credibility, squarely addressing the issues of “greenwashing” that often confuse and mislead consumers.
