Bamboo Cabinets from AlterECO
AlterECO, based in San Francisco, creates custom modern bamboo cabinets for the kitchen and bamboo vanities for the bathrooms. Custom cabinetry often comes at a price; however, AlterECO claims that they are priced significantly lower than many other high quality custom cabinets and are perfectly priced for the “middle class family.”
Their approach to sustainable design is as follows: “While all of our work at AlterECO has been green since our founding in 1997, becoming ever more clear is the vital importance that “green” be meaningful and truly impactful in moving society in the direction of sustainability and getting the CO2 in our atmosphere back down to normal, healthy levels (350ppm or less). And time is of the essence. Such critical mandates require far more than “green” consumerism. In addition to requiring that less products actually be “consumed”–be they “green” or not, products must be be designed from a perspective of interconnectedness with the environment, with community, with life.”
