    Green Built For You and Our Planet

    Green Built is working with architects, builders, visionaries and others in the Hudson Valley, NY and throughout the Northeast to rebuild a vibrant, sustainable regional economy. Our goal is to reduce carbon emissions, improve resiliency and to create sustainable, lasting industries.

We’re All About Sustainable Building

We believe there’s a better way to build and a healthier way to live. We want to know that we and our homes can survive and thrive whatever nature throws our way. With toxic materials installed in hundreds of thousands of homes and buildings in America, we say, There is a better way.

 

Healthy Natural Materials

Healthy Natural Materials

There is no need to worry about "Sick Building Syndrome" because a hemp-lime building is both natural and non-toxic. Hemp provides the insulation, regulating temperature and humidity, while the lime binder is fire and mold resistant and keeps out pests. Hemp-lime produces no VOCs, contains no petroleum or chemical additives, and is both biodegradable and recyclable.

Zero Carbon

Zero Carbon

Some so-called “green” materials (like spray foam insulation) are made with global warming chemicals and use energy intensive processes. Hemp-lime is good for the planet. Fiber hemp sequesters more carbon than a forest, while lime uses far less energy to produce than cement. A building made with hemp-lime continues to sequester carbon for at least a hundred years.

Built to Last

Built to Last

The greenest buildings are those that are preserved and conserved or built to last for centuries. We believe that tearing a building down every twenty years due to the inherent limitations of its building materials is unsustainable. Hemp-lime can help preserve old buildings and make them energy efficient. With new construction hemp-lime just grows stronger over time.
