Millenia Retaining Walls Voted Best Green Exterior Product

Millenia Wall Solutions, developer of the Millenia® Retaining Wall System, announced that its SC100™ - SC50™ Retaining Wall Units won Best Exterior Product - Design in the first annual Readers' Choice Awards conducted by Environmental Design and Construction (ED and C) and Sustainable Facility magazines. Winners were announced on November 18, 2008 in Boston, Mass. at the U.S. Green Building Council's Greenbuild International Conference and Expo.

Millenia® retaining walls offer incomparable beauty, durability and ease of installation - plus a clear environmental advantage for up to eight LEED credit points in green building and sustainable development projects. Millenia® wall units are listed the GreenSpec® Directory, the recognized source of authoritative information on the top 5-10 percent of the most environmentally positive alternatives among all green construction products. Millenia® SC100 and SC50 wall units are manufactured in 100 percent pre-consumer recycled polymers. When used instead of concrete blocks, the Millenia® system reduces the environmental impact of retaining walls by 55 percent -- including a two-thirds reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

The Readers' Choice Awards is an online contest that gives both manufacturers and readers the opportunity to showcase and vote for, respectively, the top green building products that best combine sustainable attributes with ease of use and installation. Readers visited the ED+C Web site to cast their vote for the best green products in ten different categories. A complete list of winners and product descriptions is available on the ED+C Web site.
