Green Choice is About Taking Action

Environmental stewardship is a part of Wellborn's culture, as shown through decades of actions, investments, and practices. The Green Choice program ensures that you are purchasing a brand of cabinets from a company that takes conscious steps to protect and minimize the overall impact on our environment. At Wellborn, we have recycling programs that utilize wood waste to generate power and steam and continue to lower VOC emissions through technology. We partner with our suppliers to improve their environmental programs. You will find the KCMA Environmental Stewardship Program seal proudly displayed on our cabinetry. We also take part in certification programs to verify our manufacturing process is reducing our impact on the environment.

Wellborn Cabinet continuously searches for new technologies and processes to improve our sustainability practices. We will continue to partner with our suppliers and industry associations in a joint effort to embrace the changes necessary and ensure that we all have a healthier environment. Wellborn's demonstrated commitment to environmental stewardship offers our consumers the assurance that the cabinets they buy are the Green Choice for generations of family and the environment.

Wellborn's Natural Gas Savings = Heat for 5,124 Homes for One Year

Wellborn Cabinet utilizes steam from wood fires co-generation plants in our dry kilns, heating ovens, and paint room. This process saves approximately 300,000 (MCF) thousand cubic feet of natural gas annually, a nonrenewable resource, by using collected wood shavings.
