Cabinets by C & F has seen the perfect opportunity to carve out a niche in the market with their new promise to purchase only American made cabinets and utilize eco-friendly construction for their kitchen cabinets. By purchasing only American made products, Cabinets by C & F can better ensure that the materials they buy contribute to helping the American economy get back on its feet as well as ensuring the exclusion of hazardous elements that have been found in imported supplies.
In particular, Mid Continent Cabinetry manufactured in Minnesota, received the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association Environmental Stewardship Program Certification in January of 2007. They utilize only raw materials approved by the KCMA, while capturing amazing natural beauty in their cabinetry. The annual certification enables Mid Continent to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to sound and sustainable environmental practices in the production of their products in areas that impact the environment and their community. Certification includes rigorous review and compliance in 5 categories: Air Quality, Product Resource Management, Process Resource Management, Environmental Stewardship, & Community Relations.
Another option aside from the construction of the cabinets is to purchase cabinets made from renewable resources like bamboo. Bamboo has become a popular choice for kitchen remodeling around the Phoenix area. Narrow Stave Caramelized Bamboo veneers from Ultracraft Cabinetry manufactured in North Carolina, are known for their characteristic color & graining, with the recognizable knuckles at the growth joints. Steaming creates a warm, brown color by naturally darkening the sugar compounds in the plant, creating the warm brown shade without the use of dyes or stains. Bamboo is an extremely fast growing grass, reaching maturity in 5 to 7 years for sustainable harvesting. Considered a rapidly, renewable resource, Bamboo stalks regenerate from the same root system within 3 to 7 years. Bamboo is an extremely stable, dense and strong material, that remains color stable with age & exposure to sunlight. Lyptus from DURASUPREME Alectra collection, manufactured in Minnesota, is a plantation-grown, premium hardwood desired for its rich, beautiful color and fine grain texture similar to Mahogany. A natural hybrid of Eucalyptus grandis & E. urophylla, Lyptus grows to full maturity in 15 years from selected nursery plants interspersed in indigenous warm climate forests. This practice controls erosion and produces a tree approximately 30 inches in diameter by approximately 100 feet tall. Self-pruning, the Lyptus tree re-grows from its own trunk when cut, eliminating the need to remove the stump. Lyptus is a dense & heavy hardwood that mellows with age and exposure to sunlight.
