Browse for the perfect products, get inspired from other people’s projects, and learn why and how sustainable solutions are right for your home. Whatever you’re searching for, spend some time looking around the site. We can almost guarantee you’ll find something you never knew existed for your dream green home!

Here’s what you’ll find on Elemental Green:


Green homes come in all shapes and sizes and we show them off in all of their green glory — LEED homes, passive homes, net zero homes, Living Building Challenge homes, tiny homes, prefabs, shipping container homes, eco-apartments, lofts, condos and more!


The market for green building and renovation materials and design concepts is exploding, but new innovations often go relatively unnoticed by the increasing population of people who would be interested in using them. That ends here. We intend on making this your one-stop shop for exploring possibilities and finding everything you need.


Going green is a journey and a constant learning curve. We know from experience that sometimes the information is overwhelming and other times it’s so wonky it’ll put you to sleep. Our goal is to translate, demystify, and hopefully even delight.


Since maintaining your home is a never-ending necessity, make sure you keep up with the latest products, design inspiration, and general developments in the world of green home building and renovation by signing up for our email updates – inspiration delivered straight to your inbox!

One more thing – this site isn’t just about us “talking” and you “listening,” we want to hear from you. Please share your projects, experiences, favorite products, and related expertise for others to learn from and be inspired by. Click here to learn more.


What is Elemental Green?

Elemental Green is the ultimate green home resource to dream, discover and design solutions for sustainable home building and renovation.

Why create this resource?

The founder, Sheridan Foster, was in the middle of building a new home and found it hard to source green building products and materials.  Each decision became a series of  labor-intensive web and catalog searches. An idea was born for an easier, beautiful and educational solution to this problem. Sheridan pulled together the “dream green team” to create a resource for homeowners, builders and architects who want to discover sustainable products for a more efficient, greener home.
