The Green Building Exchange leases space in a building lacking green credentials, although the interior walls are coated with low-toxic paint. The eco-emporium is set to expand, becoming the largest tenant in the Green Exchange slated to open in Chicago late in 2008.
More than five dozen stores in 27 states specialize in green building goods, such as in Chicago and in Sarasota, Fla. The Green Building Exchange adds a weekly radio show and workshops as well as free space to nonprofit and government groups.
