SEATTLE, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Builder® Media announces the launch of its Made in America campaign. This program celebrates U.S.-made products and manufacturing facilities that support the American economy and limit harmful emissions into the atmosphere by reducing the miles products need to travel to get to consumers.


Kicking off the campaign is the Made in America giveaway, which launched June 19. Green Builder Media is offering a chance for one lucky family to win a 3-night, 4-day trip for four to visit the Green Builder VISION House® in Lake Buena Vista, Florida to experience some of the latest eco-friendly products made in the United States. Go to to enter.

The resurgence in American manufacturing is, in part, because of the enthusiasm for products sourced and produced in the United States. According to Alan Uke in his book "Buying America Back," just one manufacturing job supports five other U.S. jobs: "Any amount consumers spend on U.S.-made goods, or goods from countries with balanced trade, brings and holds money into the U.S. economy.  It also makes the United States more politically, financially, and militarily secure."

Green Builder Media's flagship publication—Green Builder magazine—the most influential magazine in the market focused on sustainable living –will concentrate its July and August issues on Made in America success stories and products that building professionals and consumers can feel good about specifying.

"We are committed to supporting companies who not only help bolster the U.S. economy, but also run green facilities and offer consumers quality sustainable products that minimize the negative environmental impacts of long-distance transport," says Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman. "The innovative companies that will be featured in our Made in America campaign are leading the market at a time when environmental stewardship is more important than ever."

The VISION House in Lake Buena Vista, FL is the ideal venue to highlight Made in America green products. U.S. made products showcased in the exhibit include:

  • Boral durable roof tiles, bricks and pavers, stone, and trim,
  • Kohler low-flow plumbing fixtures,
  • Schott high-performance cooking and fireplace glass,
  • Pella energy efficient windows and doors,
  • Armstrong sustainably harvested flooring and cabinets,
  • BioBased spray-foam insulation by Rhino Linings,
  • DuPont housewrap and surfaces.
