Eco-Friendly Cabinet Material

Many individuals are becoming more and more health conscious and environmentally conscious. These same individuals focus much of their time and attention on how to live healthy lives in mind, body, and spirit. However, what some may not realize is that mantra is something worth carrying over to your individual living space as well.

There are many ways to incorporate health and environment into your living space. Including green cleaning and doing feng shui are just two examples; however, making certain that the materials your home is made of are eco-friendly is another wonderful way to help your health – and benefit the environment too.

Many times individuals want a simple change, or their homes need a bit of updating. The kitchen is and always has been the hub of attention for most homeowners. Have you ever noticed that even though your home is amply suitable for many guests, those very same guests seem to congregate into your kitchen ñ even for an outdoor barbeque?

Well, that is one great reason to remodel your kitchen. And remodeling your kitchen with eco-friendly cabinet material is good for your soul and good for your environment too.

Using eco-friendly cabinet material has two benefits; one is that it is good for the environment, and the other is that it is good for your health.

Traditional cabinetry has materials and chemicals that are simply harmful to your environment and your health. Materials such as toxic glue and formaldehyde are the two main components of cabinetry that you need to watch out for when remodeling your kitchen.

Even if you think that this is a temporary problem, this is an incorrect assumption. Years after cabinet installation, vapors from formaldehyde and toxic glue can seep into the air that you breathe. Typically, this is because formaldehyde and toxic glue are used as materials to piece together particle board.

There are better choices, namely:

  • Recycled wood
  • Wheatboard
  • Fiberboard
  • Bamboo
  • Lyptus

Recycled wood helps save future trees, while wheatboard and fiberboard do not use toxins. Wheatboard is made up of wheat staff. What a perfect way to utilize nature and have a healthy kitchen to boot. Wheat staff does not emit toxic vapors over time like the formaldehyde emitted from particleboard and glue toxins.

Bamboo is just a wonderful all-natural alternative to anything that can even come close as far as utilizing Mother Natureís resources. Bamboo is attractive, sleek and natural in look, and is not harmful to your health. Lyptus is a renewable wood that has a rich, elegant tone and texture.

There are many alternatives for creating that eco-friendly and healthy kitchen for yourself and your family. After all, isnít the kitchen the place where health begins?
