Dan Phillips – Grandfather of Salvage

Check this video out of Dan Phillips who builds entirely out of salvaged material.


At Eco Brooklyn our definition of green contractor is one who works with salvaged materials. The greener you are the more you are able to salvage. It is a very simple metric and easily measured. Next time a NY contractor tells you they are green just ask them how much of their job is salvaged materials. That will tell you how green they are.
