Green Builder Media is the latest outlet to regurgitate the baseless, alarmist rhetoric against PVC by Perkins & Will and Healthy Building Network (HBN) – claims we have previously debunked on Vinyl Verified.  Aside from Green Builder’s lack of originality, the article recklessly promotes the misleading findings of a 2015 HBN flawed paper.

And it conceals the fact that Perkins & Will Principal / HBN Board Chair, Robin Guenther, doubles as a Senior Advisor to the staunch anti-PVC advocacy group Health Care Without Harm.  A fact, we believe, readers deserve to know – and one that precludes HBN from being viewed as a credible resource on PVC related issues.

Green Builder Media’s “report” is nothing more than ideological opinion sourced from HBN’s flawed white paper, and the irresponsible promotion of agenda-driven activism.
