GURNEE, HOFFMAN ESTATES, NAPERVILLE, TINLEY PARK, IL …
There’s a misconception among many consumers that buying “green” refers strictly to products made of natural materials. While that’s part of the equation, there’s much more to it. Like appliances and lighting that last longer and use less power to run. Or plumbing that requires less water. At the four DirectBuy showrooms of greater Chicago, members not only have the opportunity to purchase the full spectrum of green products under one roof, but they also can save some “green” buy paying manufacturer-direct prices.
Some of the “green” products available to DirectBuy members include:
● Faucets and plumbing fixtures that offer low consumption
● Natural cork flooring and underlayments
● Flooring made of renewable natural bamboo
● Lighting and ceiling fans with Energy Star ratings
● Energy Star compliant kitchen appliances, washers and dryers
● Cabinets treated with low-voc, LEED-compliant stains
● Bedroom, dining room, living furniture manufactured by members of the Sustainable Furniture Council; many of these pieces are made from natural fibres, use eco-friendly foam and contain organic, halogen-free fire retardants.
“Consumers are always being encouraged to make ‘greener’ purchases, but there’s no real road map as to where to make these purchases and whether or not what they do buy is green,” said Dave Kushman, owner of DirectBuy of Hoffman Estates. “The green products our members can buy through DirectBuy have been rated by recognized ‘green’ authorities like Energy Star, LEED or the Sustainable Furniture Council so you know the green purchase you’re making is part of the solution.”
Energy Star ratings refer to the U.S.-government backed program ranking the energy efficiency of products. LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is voluntary green building rating system, which is a consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance sustainable buildings. The Sustainable Furniture Council is a non-profit balanced coalition of manufacturers, retailers and consumers offering a public tagging program to identify good “green” choices.
“We all know we should be making greener purchases, particularly when it comes to products we use in our everyday lives like lighting and appliances. Unfortunately, making those wiser choices can be quite costly. By making all these green options available at DirectBuy, we give our members the choice to save money and valuable natural resources,” said Kushman.
