Since you’re here, you’re probably a lot like us: creative, practical, caring, and ready to inspire a better way. We are inspired to do things right and keep things simple. We believe in treating everyone as if they were our friend, protecting our environment as if it were our home, and finding creative solutions to over complicated challenges. In short, we are Way Basics. Paper based storage furniture became the foundation of our initial introduction for the brand. Our founder, Jimmy, thought it would be fun to create a recycling bin made from recycled paper, since it’s one of the most commonly recycled materials. It comes flat and then pops open like paper grocery bag, but a much fancier design. You can throw all your recyclables in it, and then recycle the entire thing - then pop another one open and the recycling starts again. It's simple and elegant.

Simple: The World's Easiest Assembly

In our packages, you won't find mysterious collections of screws and nails, or complicated diagrams and instructions. That's because you can put our unique zBoards together without tools or hardware. Super-strong 3M brand adhesive strips let you fit the pieces neatly together. Just peel, stick, and you're done.

Safe: Zero Formaldehyde Or VOC

We treat the people of the world as our family. We want you to be safe and live the healthiest life possible. You can rest assured that our products aren't polluting the air inside your home, as there are no VOCs or formaldehyde in our products. VOCs are chemicals that become a gas at room temperature, such as formaldehyde. Products made with those chemicals will release the gas into the air, a process called off-gassing, and if high concentrations of formaldehyde are off-gassed and breathed in, it could cause health problems. We also use a water-based glue that is completely recyclable.

story 1

How Strong Is The Double-Sided Adhesive Tape?

Very, very strong. We use only 3M industrial-strength heavy-duty adhesive tape on our products. To take full advantage of all that sticking power and get optimum adhesion, make sure your bonding adhesive surfaces are clean, dry, and properly joined. It works best if you put together your furniture in a room that’s between 70° F to 100° F (21° C to 38° C). This super-tape’s bonds get stronger during the first 24 hours, so we recommend that you let your furniture sit in place for the first day.

story 2

What Is zBoard?

Our patented manufacturing process turns this post-consumer recycled paper into superbly strong paperboards that weigh 62% less than particle board with unmatched quality and durability. zBoards are the wave of the future thanks to the basic principles of being simple, fun, practical, and made from one of the simplest materials ever - paper.

story 3

How Strong Is It?

It’s very strong indeed! zBoards are made from multiple, overlapping layers of paperboard and corrugated paper that combine to withstand tremendous pressure. We like to describe the zBoard as the "carbon fiber of paper." A cube has a recommended max weight of 50 lbs.

story 4

Can I Stack Them?

Yes, cubes are designed to be modular and can be arranged any way to fit your space and create your own organization system.

story 5

Great For Home, Kids, Office

Way Basics Cubes are the perfect storage solution for any room in your home, kids love them, and they even find their way into the work environment.

story 6

Toxin Free

zBoards are made from post-consumer recycled paper and do not consume additional natural resources like trees and the enormous amounts of water needed to make virgin paper. Way Basics furniture also does not "off-gas" or contain formaldehyde and VOCs.

I bought 8 of these. They're super easy to assemble (though I didn't pay attention on one and put one of the sides on backwards, oops) and really quick. I use them as the base for my queen size boxspring/mattress, and they've held up amazingly well over the past year. Definitely worth the money!

Glad I tried!
When I first read about these I wondered how strong they could really be. I mean, they're made of recycled paper! Still, I watched the WayBasics video and saw the guy standing on a cube and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did, because these are really neat! They're strong and sturdy, even for being put together with adhesive. They come in lots of fun colors, and are a good surface for wall stickers if you want to further decorate them. I like that if one breaks or you're done with them, they're fully recyclable in your paper bin!

love the product
This tool free product was surprisingly easy to make. I love being able to move the cube around so easily. Its so light and so I don’t need to drag it. I think I will buy the tribeca next. I hope it is just as light!

Great Eco Friendly Furniture
This eco friendly cube is good for just about any use. What I like the most about it is that it is made out of recycled paper, yet just as strong as any other piece of furniture I've bought. Great value and should last for a very long time.

What I wanted
The product took me twice to assemble, but I wasn't careful at all the first time. I just wanted something that would help organize a dresser top and this did the trick. $20 and no shipping is probably a bit pricier than what you could get the wood and assembly supplies for at a hardware store, but this is immensely more convenient for a college student. Eco friendly and fast delivery too. What more could you ask for.

I like to get organized. I like things simple.
I like to build possibilities.
