Does anyone have any information (or can point me to sources) on the
environmental benefits of salvaging building materials or reusing
particular building products, i.e., how much energy or natural resources
go into making certain products that can be salvaged, such as fixtures,
windows, hardware, etc.?
Much appreciated.
