Alta™ Boards Are Eco-friendly

Many people believe we live in a “throwaway society.” We believe in conservation and in good, old-fashioned workmanship.

Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Boards are made from 100 percent paper products, and are extremely easy to recycle (unlike lumber, which is much more difficult to reprocess).  Making a household item with our kits contributes to a better planet, and sets a great example for family, friends and neighbors.

Not only that, but when you finish your Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Board table or chair, you will have a piece of furniture that will last, that is strong enough to take anything you or your kids can dish out.  Isn’t that better than fighting the crowds at a big box discount store for something that will be sitting in a landfill a year or two later?

We think so, and we’re guessing you do, too. Ready to tackle your next DIY project? There’s plenty you can do with cardboard, so why not order an Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Board Kit today and get started?
