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 would be flat and then pops open like paper grocery bag, but a much fancier design. You would throw all your recyclables in it, and then recycle the entire thing. Pop another one open and recycling starts again. Simple. Elegant.
We’ve made a heartfelt commitment to contributing to those in need. When you buy Way Basics furniture, you’re helping improve the world in other ways, too. We work with furniture banks and charities around the country to help those families in desperate need -- victims of natural disasters who’ve lost everything they owned, women and children escaping from domestic violence, working families below the poverty line, and others requiring a hand up — not a handout.
As founding members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, a coalition united to promote environmentally healthy practices in the industry, we are helping consumers identify good furniture choices. We also strive to offset our company carbon emissions by being a carbon neutral brand. We invite you to find out more about our products, our company, and our goals. Because we’re pretty sure they’re right in line with yours.
