ECO-Friendly Products

Sustainable Cabinets

BKC supports eco-friendly cabinets and sustainable initiatives.  Our brands include top cabinet manufacturers certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association’s (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program.

This program recognizes manufacturers that use environmentally-responsible materials in the production of their products.  Additionally, these companies minimize community impacts by recycling wastes and using low-emissions finish coatings.

Crystal Cabinet Works has been directly involved in the development of the ESP program.  They are considered an industry leader in the manufacturing of eco-friendly cabinets.  Crystal offers more eco-friendly products than any other nationally-distributed cabinet manufacturer.

Their comprehensive green products include:

  • FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified woods
  • No added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) plywood in standard cabinet box construction
  • GreenGuard Laminates
  • Low VOC finishes
  • Recycled materials
  • Rapidly-renewable materials (bamboo available in veneer, solid or 3-ply)

BKC is proud to offer products by cabinet manufacturers who strive to reduce effects on human health and the environment. Eco-friendly products are a perfect option for you and your family.

Sustainable Practices

At BKC, we’re committed to doing our part to minimize the impact of our business operations on the environment:

  • 100% of our surplus materials are donated to a local not-for-profit organization for re-sale and re-use.  Showroom displays are recycled in this manner if they are not sold to customers.
  • All of our office and warehouse space is illuminated with low-energy consumption fluorescent bulbs.  The primary lighting in our showroom consists of compact fluorescent bulbs.
  • The heating and cooling of BKC’s facility is controlled by energy-efficient programmable thermostats.
  • All paper, plastic, aluminum cans and other waste metals are collected for recycling.
  • Outdated storage files and manufacturer catalogs are accumulated for annual shredding and recycling.
