Welcome to the discussion forum on green design and construction! This discussion is sponsored by Iris Communications, Inc., creator of the Oikos Web site and REDI database of green building materials, and by Environmental Building News (EBN), an international newsletter on environmentally sustainable design and construction. Additional support is provided by Construction Forum, Inc. and Center for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technology (CREST).

Messages to be read by the whole group should be sent to:


All adminstrative stuff goes to:

Majordomo@crest.org (see below) And complaints, comments, and suggestions go the the moderators:

Nadav Malin <nadav@ebuild.com> Bruce Sullivan <sullivan@oikos.com> Jim Newman <jnewman@user1.channel1.com>

This is a free flowing discussion among the participants. The sponsors assume no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any posting.

Please feel free to read the list without posting. Many newcomers feel more comfortable "lurking" until they get a feel for the group. However, the community is best served when you contribute your thoughts to topics about which you are well-informed.

POSTING GUIDELINES: ===================

This discussion group exists to promote communication between people interested in environmentally responsible design and construction. Please be sure to keep the discussion within the bounds of that topic. If a thread of discussion strays off topic, you may be asked to move the discussion to private e-mail or to a more appropriate forum.

Please identify yourself with your real name and an e-mail address.

Please respond directly to the author of a post, and NOT to the list as a whole unless your response is likely to be interest to others.

Please use clear, descriptive subject lines. Doing so should make it obvious what is a product announcement, a calendar listing, or a technical question/response. If you're using the digest mode, be sure to insert the subject to which you're responding. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN AUTOMATICALLY.

Please quote only the relevant passage(s) from a message to which you're responding.

Avoid overly promotional or advertorial postings.

Please direct any comments or suggestions about these guidelines or other logistics concerning the list to the moderators (nadav@ebuild.com, sullivan@oikos.com, jnewman@us1.channel1.com), NOT to the list as a whole. We will periodically review comments and update user guidelines as needed.

Please direct any complaints about the appropriateness of a particular posting to the person individually, with a CC to the moderators. < DO NOT POST THESE MESSAGES TO THE GROUP AS A WHOLE. >
