What 5/8" drywall alternatives are available that are green/high-recycled-content?
I am the LEED for Homes AP on several residential projects, and we would like to use a "greener drywall". Now that EcoRock has gone the way of the dinosaurs, any assistance you can provide in sourcing would be very helpful, as well as weighing on on your assessments of different options. Thanks!
The best combination I could find was National Gypsum: 5/8" Gold Bond Fire-Shield Gypsum Board Long Beach, CA. It is:
- 5% Post Consumer and
- 3% Pre Consumer.
Best of luck with your projects, Edward.
