Some things start out with one simple idea. This was the case with Way Basics®. The founder sought to create a recycling bin made from recycled paper because it was simple, green and the right thing to do. The idea evolved into the concept of a paper-based furniture line which led to the development of the brand. By using recycled newspaper, the non-toxic, 100% safe furniture does not consume the vast resources needed to make similar wood-based products - instead, recycled paper becomes a zBoard®, the basic building component of the modern furniture line. The recycled paperboard is as strong as particle board yet 62% lighter. The collection of sturdy paperboard home furnishings includes modular stackable storage cubes, bookcases, organizers, shelf units, wall shelves, storage benches and paper bag holders that assemble easily in mere minutes. No tools are required; the glazed paperboard pieces fit together with adhesive strips - simply peel, stick and you're done.
