Installing InsulationIf you want to find information on green building and environmental construction, a great place to look is the BuildingGreen website. BuildingGreen is stocked with resources that shine light on designing and building projects that minimize ecological impact.

Among their available resources is The BuildingGreen Guide to Insulation Products and Practices, which helps users choose insulation products, learn insulation fundamentals, and understand the environmental and health impacts of each insulation material. And for one week, the site is making the insulation guide available as a free download for users who try a BuildingGreen Suite free 30-day trial. BuildingGreen Suite is a membership-based publication that provides comprehensive information on green design, and you can sign up for your 30-day trial — and download your copy of the insulation guide — at the BuildingGreen checkout page. The offer for the free insulation guide download ends Wednesday, Feb. 20.
