Excellent article. Credible certifications are important in office decor, but they can also add an extra 25% to the price tag. If you're a small business, trying to do the right thing and finding the need to prioritize in terms of cost you don't have to disregard anything that's not certified. Many times you can obtain the same green integrity by purchasing your office decor from local, eco conscious businesses who have been following best green practices for years, even tho they may not have obtained third party certifications. Seek out businesses that are willing to discuss their products in terms of sourcing, processing and transportation/fuel impact. You will find that oftentimes, locally sourced wood and furniture for example, are often greener than imported certified products carring the high fuel costs of overseas shipping.
