NEW ORLEANS, LA - Eco Building Products (OTCBB: ECOB) says its Eco Blue Shield treated wood products are in use in New Orleans by Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation for replacing homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
The houses designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry use the Eco Blue coatings that resist mold, wood rot and termites, useful given New Orleans' climate.
Eco Building Products says it shipped six home packages, with three more ready to ship and a backlog of 15 more homes shipping in the next few weeks. Wood is purchased and treated through Guthrie Lumber in Austin, Texas, since there is no dealer n New Orleans at present. Cesar Rodriguez, procurement and construction services manager for the Make It Right Foundation, coordinates materials for the foundation.
