Environmentally conscious consumers have more options than ever to limit their negative impact on the planet, at least when it comes to their kitchen cabinets.
The Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) created the Environment Stewardship Program (ESP) to help manufacturers, consumers, designers, architects and builders identify environmentally friendly products. More than 150 cabinet manufacturers carry an ESP seal, which recognizes companies meeting requirements of air quality, product resource management, process resource management, environmental stewardship and community relations. Stock, semi-custom and custom cabinetry are all available with ESP certification.
Whether purchasing through local dealers, designers or home improvement centers, such as Lowe's or Home Depot, look for and inquire about products with an ESP seal.
Once you've made your cabinet choices, it's all over but the installation. Get tips on hiring the right contractors and installers for the job.
