Green, Defined (6/15/09)

June 15, 2009
ASI Web site users define what "green" means to them.


What makes an adhesive or sealant "green"? Here are the results from a recent Web poll we conducted:
 
 

Low in VOCs

21%
 

Sustainable

14%

  

Contains natural ingredients

14%

 

Made with recycled materials

12%


Water based

12%


Low or no HAPs

12% 

 

Recyclable/reuseable

7% 
 

Qualifies for LEED points

7% 
 
These results were a surprise to me, and showed that not everyone thinks of green in the same way.
 
Do you agree with these results? What makes a product "green" to you?
