Wellborn’s Environmental Belief Statement

It is Wellborn Cabinet, Inc.’s corporate-wide goal to fully incorporate leading environmental practices, policies, and standards throughout our enterprise — from our suppliers through final delivery to our customers. Our environmental responsibility has extended to include selecting, educating, and embracing suppliers based on their commitment to similar environmental practices, including the use of sustainable or recycled raw materials as well as low emission products.


Green Choice is About Taking Action

Environmental stewardship has been part of Wellborn’s culture since the beginning. This responsibility has always been about more than just words and has been proven 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.

Wellborn’s Natural Gas Savings = Heat For 5,124 Homes For One Year;
Wellborn utilizes steam from the wood fired co-generation plant in our dry kilns, heating ovens & paint room. This process saves approximately 300,000 (MCF) thousand cubic feet of natural gas annually, a nonrenewable resource, by using collected wood shavings.
