“This means that anyone planning a kitchen remodel can now design a complete green kitchen using custom-made cabinetry that is as stylish as it is environmentally friendly,” said Taja di Leonardi, founder and managing partner of Ecohome Improvement, which celebrates one year as a foremost sustainable green business, and is the only store of its kind in the area. “What is more, we offer a wide range of flooring, countertops, and tiles that stand out for their beauty, quality and environmental attributes.”
Ecohome Cabinetry comes in a range of finish materials including bamboo and woods certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an independent auditing organization created to manage and protect the world’s forests. The cabinet casing is constructed using PureBond, a urea-formaldehyde free and FSC-certified hardwood plywood panel by Columbia Forest Products. All stains, finishes and paints used in the cabinetry are low in VOC levels and are free of formaldehyde.
The demand for custom environmental and healthy home cabinetry is increasing and “very few manufacturers offer solutions that meet the market demand for options that are free of VOCs, and urea-formaldehyde,” she explained. “We are very excited to bring to market the Ecohome Cabinetry collection which represents a synthesis of design, quality fabrication, sustainably harvested materials and healthy home options.” And, with their trained cabinetry designers and unique integrated design-to-machine-cut fabrication process which ensure fast turnaround and affordable prices, its never been easier to go green!
Di Leonardi said they purchase all materials from the surrounding area and have the cabinets constructed locally to support the Bay Area business community, including delivery of the finished cabinets using a bio-diesel truck.
Coming up this weekend, Ecohome Improvement will host a booth – #743 in the Green Building Section – at the fifth annual San Francisco Green Festival November 10 to 12. Thousands of people will attend the three-day festival featuring inspirational speakers, unique events and educational workshops. Di Leonardi and Virginia Young of Yolo Colorhouse will lead a discussion at the festival called “Entrepreneurship and Green Building” on Friday, November 10 at 5 PM.
The Green Festival will be held Friday, November 10 from 2 to 8 PM, Saturday, November 11 from 10 AM to 8 PM, and Sunday, November 12 from 11 AM to 6 PM at the San Francisco Concourse, 8th and Brannan streets in the South of Market Area. Tickets are $15 at the door. Students, seniors and bike riders $7; kids 12 and under are free. For more about the Green Festival, visit www.greenfestivals.org.
