Why Go Green?

Our focus on saving the environment with our dedication to the highest standards of green wood products in conventional cabinetry is outstanding.  Your clients and customers will be relieved to know that the products that you can offer them are 100% environmentally friendly.

 

Green kitchen cabinets are quickly becoming more and more popular; yet the resources available for eco-friendly cabinets are still sparse.  Most of us spend many hours in the kitchen but did you know that the air in our kitchen could be making us sick?  Choosing a green design in kitchen cabinets basically means you are seeking cabinets that don’t place a strain on the environment nor pollute indoor air quality.

 

There are several green kitchen cabinet options abailable to you.  When choosing a cabinet manufacturer who claims to have ‘green cabinets’ be sure to ask for certification that their products are indeed formaldehyde free and created with no or low VOC’s.

Low VOC Finishes

We make sure the clear sealant aplpied to the exterior cabinet doors, frames, and cabinet panels is a no or low VOC (volatile organic compound) water-based finish.  This is crucial because the majority of clear finishes used to seal the wood on cabinet exteriors emit high levels of VOC’s which produce harmful levels of gas in the air.  These low VOC finishes are available upon your request.

Formaldehyde-Free Kitchen Cabinets

If you are interested in formldehyde-free kitchen cabinets, there are several choices available to you:

 

  • Stainless steel kitchen cabinets or any other metal cabinet is going to be free of toxic chemicals, making them a safe bet.

 

  • The most common materials for green kitchen cabinets are non-lumber products.   Bamboo not only is appealing to the eye and durable, but it is also rapidly renewable.  Bamboo can mature in less than half the time it takes hardwood trees to reach market size, making it a popular choice for environmentalists.

 

  • Request that your cabinet boxes be made with wheat or straw board.  Wheat board is basically the remnants of the straw waste left over from farmers’ wheat crops.  The plant stems of the wheat (straw) are finely milled and bound together with sustainable binders that are formaldehyde free.  Wheat board meets and many times exceeds the set standards for particle board in North America
