Second-Look® Recycled Wallcovering

Second-Look® Supports LEED

Second-Look is a comprehensive, closed-loop approach to sustainability.  Our reclamation program retrieves and recycles vinyl wallcoverings that are currently in the marketplace.  The material that would otherwise go to a landfill is transformed into new low-VOC wallcoverings with 10% post-consumer material and a total of 20% recycled content.  The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has studied vinyl and recommended that it be treated equally with other building materials with regard to eligibility for LEED credits.

Second-Look supports LEED criteria for:

  • MR – Materials and Resources – Recycled content
  • MR – Materials and Resources – Construction waste management
  • EQ – Indoor Environmental Quality – Low emitting materials

Note: Building materials support the LEED system, but do not carry a rating by themselves.
