As compared to wood decking, all alternative decking products are much more eco-friendly and sustainable. As compared to other alternative decking products, Green Bay Decking's formula is also superior. Their composite deck systems have been used on green LEED-certified buildings and projects for commercial, residential, and marine use. View their LEED statement for additional information. Green Bay Decking products contain rice hulls, a rapidly-renewable resource made from the discarded outer husks of rice kernels, and discarded paper pulp, a by-product of the paper-making process. Because of the close proximity of the local manufacturer that provides their paper by-product we qualify for additional LEED credits. Both rice hulls and paper by-product would often otherwise be incinerated or sent to land fills.
