CADdetails has uncovered the latest in green building products and environmentally friendly design practices developed to support architects, builders, building owners and designers in their efforts to build and maintain sustainable sites. Follow the links below to learn about CADdetails.com SpecGREEN manufacturers and how the green products they offer may contribute towards the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification of your next commercial or residential building or interior design.


Our products are made from 100% naturally occurring materials. We also take great strides to ensure that our products are 100% environmentally safe. Watching specific elements of how unique agricultural products perform in nature, Envirobond's research focused on developing a product line that was green in function and form. By mixing a powdered plant glue with crushed aggregate, Envirobond was initially created as an alternative to Asphalt for trails and pathways. This trailway product, when activated by water, hardened up and provided erosion resistance against washouts. Shortly after the success of the trailway product, it was noticed that contractors began using it as ajoint filler for large natural stone joints, such as flagstone. This niche market was uncovered as a tremendous opportunity.


Invisible Structures, Inc. offers a complete suite of stormwater management products which not only protect the environment, but actually enhance it. Their products process stormwater naturally, preventing erosion and soil migration, and cleaning water of contaminants. Their entire family of products is manufactured from some or all recycled plastics and can make help to impact LEED accreditation, with credits in Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.


PolyPavement is LEED compliant and can contribute to attaining LEED Credits in many categories for pavement . Because PolyPavement incorporates natural, indigenous soil, and has a much higher SRI (Solar Reflective Index) than black asphalt, and can be up to 100% recycled, it is favored by many green builders and architects. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, PolyPavement is non-toxic to plants and animals and it contains no known carcinogenic ingredients such as vinyl acetate or acetaldehyde. It has been tested and proven safe for sensitive aquatic life and does not leach into the ground water. PolyPavement may be applied in environmentally sensitive areas without worry or concern.


Over the past 30 years, Presto Geosystems has been an environmental steward and leader in the use of recycled plastics, manufacturing valuable stormwater and soil stabilization products from consumer waste materials that would otherwise be landfilled. Presto Geosystems’ products offer eco-friendly, low-environmental-impact solutions with high environmental value. Achieving a high LEED® rating is a sign of their customers' commitment to smart building, incorporating highly-efficient and recycled materials, and reducing land space, water and energy use. Many of their products contribute to US Green Building Council LEED® green building credits for reducing stormwater runoff, reducing the heat island effect, utilization of recycled materials and reducing site disturbance.


Manufactured from 100% recycled plastic bags, effectively keeping millions of non-degradable bags out of public landfills. Because it can be filled with natural land cover like grass, it helps reduce the “Heat Island Effect”, where higher city temperatures result from non-permeable surfaces like asphalt and concrete absorbing instead of reflecting the sun’s energy. This is important because the higher city temperatures increase air pollution levels, and heat-related illness and fatalities, and put extra pressure on our energy generation network. Ecoraster’s® environmentally-sustainable permeability allows surface water to soak through the soil and plants, which do an excellent job of filtering out pollutants, and therefore helps maintain ground water quality and avoid environmental problems caused by storm water runoff. By providing a solid structure for soil, Ecoraster® prevents soil compaction, further decreasing storm water runoff and preventing soil erosion.

The installation of TrueGrid safeguards from erosion due to vehicle traffic, pedestrian traffic, rainfall, and flooding waterway currents. TrueGrid holds your filler material in place preventing displacement and interblending. The savings from constant repairs to an eroded environment and from the replacing of paving material is valuable to your company’s bottom line. However, the saving from more wear and tear to the environment is the true benefit of using TrueGrid as a paving solution.
