Some of EBN’s own customer testimonials

“One of the best [building CDs], in my opinion, is the EBN CD [EBNA]. It’s got a ton of information about green building products. There are excellent articles about the materials that I use, and the information access is so efficient and fast. I like that you can print the articles out to show your customers a new product, or a new technique.”
Zolton B. Cohen, Buzz Burrell – Writer, Builder (resp.), Kalamazoo/Battle Creek Builder/Architect

“Easy to use and thorough, it’s an excellent resource for anyone serious about green construction.”
Green Living Magazine

“You are my first stop when I get stumped and a great resource when trying to speak to clients and co-workers who need some background information. I also refer to your magazine when I am speaking to students or beginning sustainable designers who are looking for answers or a fast track to more knowledge. I use the searchable CD-ROM almost daily. As I am getting started on a new subject, I use the index and back issues to find out what has been done and where to start looking for more information. I have grown to trust the research.”
Phaedra Svec – Architect/Sustainable Designer, Berkebile Nelson Immenschuh McDowell Architects

“This is a great publication, with constantly useful accessories such as the [EBN Archives CD-ROM]. As an active do-it-yourself owner-builder, and as an educator and publisher involved in promoting ecological building practices, I thank the stars weekly for the existence of EBN and BuildingGreen, Inc.”
Jim Schley – Editor, Chelsea Green Publishing

“The CD is invaluable with its search capability–info at my fingertips.”
