Big Names Build Up with Recycled Product: Google, Whole Foods, and More Using ECOR

Green Building and Design Magazine recently featured an article on ECOR, a green building product developed in cooperation with the Forest Products Laboratory (FPL), and its growing popularity among some big name companies.

According to the article, “early adopters of ECOR include Google, Microsoft, Proctor & Gamble, Whole Foods, Starbucks, 20th Century Fox, Gensler, TOMS, and the list goes on.”

ECOR is made from 100 percent recycled material and is durable, 100 percent recyclable, and completely free of toxins. It is a design-friendly, high-performance composite material with a broad range of applications.

Most days you can find ECOR being produced right here at FPL (by Noble employees and under the terms of a specific agreement) while a larger ECOR production facility is under construction.

ECOR was previously featured on the USDA blog when the material was used to produce the first 100 percent sustainable studio set in Hollywood.
