sustainablog Approved: Way Basics’ Recycled Paper Furnishings
Looking for reasonably-priced shelving and storage for your home? If you make your way to the local big box store, you’re going to find a lot of items made from particle board. Yes, it’s cheap, and relatively durable, but it’s also health hazard: all those wood chips are held together withformaldehyde, a known carcinogen that will be off-gassing into your house for 5-10 years. Furthermore, once that pressboard item passes its useful life, there’s little you can do with it other than send it to the landfill.
Since July 2003, sustainablog has been providing information on environmental and economic sustainability, green and sustainable business, and environmental politics. The blog regularly features environmental leaders, experts in alternative energy and green technology, and real people trying to lighten their environmental footprints.

Way Basics Recycled Paper Furniture
You don’t have to be knee deep in particle board, Allen wrenches and confusing instruction manuals to have furniture on the quick and cheap. Way Basics wants to give you back those weekends that would be spent looking for that one last, but vital part you need to finish building your new table. Put together shelves, benches and end tables made from recycled paper without any tools (other than your hands and some super strong tape). Despite how paper furniture sounds, Way Basic cubes are strong enough for a 200 lb guy to jump up and down on, which probably couldn’t be said about that stuff from a certain Swedish furniture store.

Way Basics was lucky enough to be a part of this great opportunity to give back. This amazing story is about a little girl named Ja’Naya who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. In an effort to spread sunshine during a gloomy time, her room was fully furnished by participating sponsors. To read the full story, click on the links below:
The pictures of the finished room are below. Way Basics contributed the storage on either side of the bed.
