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.
