After a dramatic rise before (and fall after) the introduction of stricter federal bankruptcy laws in late 2005, Oregon filings have steadied out at a greatly reduced rate: In 2006, the average number of business and personal filings per month were 21 and 548, respectively, compared to 93 and 2,587 per month in 2005. As shown in the table, Oregon had 228 residents per bankruptcy filing for the year ended September 2006. The rate of filings per population was lower nationwide as well as in Idaho, Washington and California. In the late ‘90s and early 2000s, Oregon suffered a disproportionate share of U.S. business bankruptcies, nearing 8% of them in fiscal year 1999, but its share has trended down to 2.3% in fiscal year 2006, much closer to the 1.2% share of the U.S. population residing in the state.

The issue of green-washing remains a significant challenge to those of us who would like to see the building sector in this country do more than make unverifiable claims of sustainability. Transparency about the impacts of a given material is the only way to allow designers to make intelligent choices when selecting building products.
