Fabric in and of itself cannot earn LEED points, but fabric containing recycled content can contribute to earning LEED points as it is a component of the furnishings for a building. Our LEED letters state the content of the fabric as well as where the product is manufactured.
Almost 90% of the Guilford of Maine Collection of Upholstery, Panel/Acoustic, and Cubicle curtain textiles contain recycled material. 76% of our textiles contain more than 50% recycled material, and most importantly, 100% of our textiles are proudly woven in North America. Nothing we sell comes from overseas.
In case you haven't heard of LEED, it stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. LEED is a program measuring the sustainability for all buildings, whether homes or businesses, new or renovated. LEED certification is achieved by earning points based on sustainability measures. A project can receive one of four LEED rating levels: Certified, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The more points a project earns, the higher the LEED rating level.
