DeWils Cabinetry’s Commitment to the Environment
For three generations, DeWils has been committed to building responsibly. We take conscious steps to minimize our overall impact and protect the environment — not because it’s the trendy choice, but because it’s the right thing to do.
We use a variety of eco-friendly materials to build our custom kitchen and bath cabinetry, including:
- Sustainably harvested wood — Our wood comes from suppliers certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Sustainable Forestry Institute (SFI).
- Safer plywood — Our standard construction material is low-formaldehyde or no urea added formaldehyde (NAUF).
- Low-VOC finishes – We use low-VOC (volatile organic compound) finishes exclusively.
- Better hardware – Our drawer guide and hinge supplier is ISO 14001-certified, which means they comply with a rigorous set of international standards designed to protect the environment.
- At DeWils, we not only strive to build a product that is healthier for your home and the planet, but we also work to ensure that our manufacturing process is cleaner for our surrounding community:
- Responsible packing – We use SFI-certified and recycled packaging for all our product lines.
- Lower emissions – Since the 1980s, DeWils has reduced emissions at our factory in Vancouver, Washington, by 84 percent.
- International approval – We were the first cabinet manufacturer from the United States to pass the formaldehyde emissions test required by Japan’s Building Standard Law, the most rigid formaldehyde testing to date. We received a rating of F-four star, the best score possible.
- Recycled wood – We recycle nearly all hardwood and sawdust waste produced in our factories.
- Energy-saving measures – We use energy-saving, high-efficiency fluorescent bulbs to light all our factories.
When you choose DeWils, you are buying a high-quality product backed by a family-run company dedicated to environmental responsibility. It is imperative that we protect the planet’s resources today. And by seeking out further ways to reduce our impact we’re committing to help create a greener tomorrow.
