Taking Care of Our Planet

Taking Care of Our Planet

As a family-owned company, we recognize the importance of leaving the next generation with something they can be proud of. We want to do our part in taking care of the planet our parents left us and that we will leave for our children. Since 1965, Decore-ative Specialties has remained conscientious of our natural resources and is dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality products.

What is Green, Greener, Greenest?

The constantly evolving “green” building industry can be difficult to navigate at times. That is why we categorized our Green Program into 3 tiers, ranging from sustainable wood materials in the Green Category to environmental certifications in the Greenest category. There is room in the “green” building industry for every one and every project!


Green Leaf

The green leaf highlights our Green program products, made with natural, sustainable, eco-friendly, or environmentally certified materials. Keep an eye out for the green leaf throughout Decore-ative Specialties literature in the future and request Green Program products for upcoming projects.
