Options for an Eco-Friendly Drywall

Drywall Installation and Green Homes

An estimated 52% of CO2 emissions are from buildings and homes — from energy use, water use, and the actual building of the home and the materials in it. The creation of drywall is a very energy intensive process. This material is used in 80% of the average home’s visible interior. Using a more efficient, green drywall is a simple way to reduce a home or building’s overall impact on the environment through choosing green over conventional building materials.

Also, poor quality drywall made from unsatisfactory materials can be more than simply unsightly. It can be hazardous to your health and the environment, like the infamous Chinese Drywall that made people sick. There are several eco-friendly drywall options that home owners can install that are made of recycled building materials and other healthy alternatives. Using these options will help reduce energy waste and harmful CO2 emissions, and make a home a little greener.
