Offers New and Improved Features for Manufacturers, Architects & Designers, Consumers, and Owners & Builders
ATLANTA, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) unveiled today a completely redesigned Web site, providing visitors with a wealth of updated, easy-to-find, user-specific information on indoor air quality (IAQ), children's health, and GREENGUARD Certification programs.
The new site boasts a fresh new layout and improved navigability -- both made possible by convenient pull-down menu tabs and pages designed specifically for each of GEI's various audiences (manufacturers, architects and designers, consumers, and owners and builders). This allows users to access information that's relevant to them instantly -- without having to waste time searching for it.
One of the biggest improvements to the site is the enhanced GREENGUARD Product Guide℠, which allows users to find GREENGUARD Certified products and materials within seconds by using a number of search criteria: keyword, product type, manufacturer, sustainable credits, and/or certification type.
"We are thrilled to be able to offer our various audiences a more user-friendly resource on indoor air quality issues," says Henning Bloech, executive director of GEI. "Our guide is the largest of its kind in the world, and is an indispensable tool for families, manufacturers, architects, designers, and builders looking to create indoor environments with superior air quality."
In addition to a new overall design, other new features on the Web site include an online "technical center" for in-depth information on testing methods and standards; a library of industry-relevant white papers; and a calendar of events outlining various conferences and trade shows in which GEI participates. Another section focused on eco-labels helps to educate consumers about dubious "green" marketing claims and how to avoid them.
