Check out this year’s greenest ideas, from an energy-sipping water heater to a full-circle PVC recycling program to residential energy management—plus an indoor greenhouse!

Lake City Colorado, UNITED STATES

Lake City, Colo., Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Builder Media is excited to once again honor an elite group of manufacturers and products that are making real progress in reducing the impact of construction upon our natural environment. They range from super-efficient solar energy management and heating equipment to one-of-a-kind recycling projects and an indoor greenhouse. 

Products like these will continue to steer us toward more sustainable lifestyles. Take, for example, The AZEK Company’s Full-Circle PVC Recycling Program, which uses scraps of decking and siding from construction sites and reprocesses them into new decking, siding, cladding, and trim products. 

Another winner is Rheem’s ProTerra Hybrid Electric Water Heater, which is four times more efficient than a standard electric tank, has built-in leak detection and shut-off, and can be controlled from a mobile device. 

“Green Builder Media’s highly coveted Innovation Awards are allocated to the industry’s most advanced products that enhance the efficiency, health, intelligence, and resiliency of the built environment,” says Sara Gutterman, Green Builder Media's CEO. “This year’s winners match shifting homeowner needs by optimizing performance, aesthetics, and sustainability.”   

Other winning categories include HVAC, solar, energy management, insulation, decking, energy recovery ventilator, and a kitchen garden product that allows anyone to grow herbs, vegetables, and microgreens inside year-round.
