Glad you asked – we're proud to say that zBoards are made from 99% post-consumer waste paper. That means recycled paper that's already been used, so we're not chopping down any more trees to create zBoards. Also, we're saving enormous amounts of water that are used to make virgin paper. Our purpose is to eliminate as much environmental impact as possible by offering an avenue for sustainable living. Many moons from now when your Way Basics furniture has reached the end of its life, you can simply recycle it in your recycling bin.
zBoards are created through a patented, proprietary process that's revolutionized paperboard manufacturing. Developing this process took more than 10 years, and it combines techniques of plywood craftsmanship, paperboard composition, and furniture manufacturing. It leads to extremely sturdy yet lightweight boards that hold up to plenty of use. Learn more about the benefits of the zBoard here.
