What Makes Eco-Friendly Kitchen Cabinets Different from Other Cabinetry?
Recently it has become clear that the environment has paid the price for our business practices and lifestyles over the last century. While we can't do anything about the past, we all have the power to change the way we live today and in the future. If you're planning a kitchen remodel, why not begin with your cabinetry? Here's how eco-friendly cabinetry stands apart from other cabinets:
Better Indoor Air Quality
Many kitchen cabinets contain urea-formaldehyde resins, a chemical used as an adhesive in pressed wood products. Unfortunately, there are some safety concerns associated with formaldehyde—when it has an airborne presence of 0.1 parts per million or more, it can cause watery eyes, nausea, and a host of other terrible side effects. Eco-friendly cabinets completely remove the risk by avoiding the use of formaldehyde and other harmful substances.
When looking for cabinets, it's crucial that you find a company that is partnered with third party, environmentally-friendly organizations that add credibility and accountability. You will be pleased to learn that eco-friendly vabinetry is approved by the Forest Stewardship Council and Executive Kitchen is certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association as an Environmental Stewardship Program manufacturer.
Better for the Environment
The formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds, and hazardous air pollutants found in some cabinets not only put your family at risk, but can also be hazardous to the environment as well. Far into the future, when old cabinets are inevitably removed, they will likely be put in a landfill or incinerated, releasing potentially harmful chemicals into the air or groundwater. Eco-friendly Cabinetry solves this problem by not including any hazardous chemicals to begin with.
