For this LEED Silver store, 87.5 percent of construction waste was diverted from a landfill. Fixtures of 32 percent recycled content contribute to a 40.2 percent level for store materials overall. Remilled FSC-certified wood from barns and demolished buildings adds rustic charm as flooring and cashwrap surfaces. Low-VOC adhesives and finishes, as well as wood products with no added urea formaldehyde, boost indoor air quality, complementing healthy lifestyle messages printed on recycled paper peppered with wildflower seeds, which can be planted by customers when signs are changed.
