Build with Wood Responsibly

A small shop in Austin built the cabinets—green just for the fact that locally made products need less fuel for shipping. But also, the boxes are crafted from Arreis, a medium-density fiberboard (MDF) made from 100 percent post-industrial wood waste and no added formaldehyde, which can off-gas and cause health problems. The face frames are Lyptus, a plantation-grown eucalyptus hybrid that regrows from the stump after the wood is harvested about every 15 years.
