I'm from MN - where Andersen is based, and actually used to live in
the city they were based out of. Although I haven't used the
windows, I was surprised to see them brought up on this list. You
see - although they are being heavily marketed locally (we've gotten
3 or 4 brochures already) they aren't being advertised (at least in
the mainstream) as "environmentally conscious" or whatever. They are
being sold on the basis of being custommade, reliable etc - but the
recycled nature of them is not even mentioned in the brochure we
recieved last week.
