If you’re a reader of our blog, it’s safe to say your closet is important to you. For some, it might even be your favorite room in the house! (No judgment here!)If that’s the case (or even if it’s not), using our ventilated wire shelving gives you one more reason to feel good about your closet: It’s green.
Did you know that our Ventilated Wire Shelving meets all the certifications to be labeled Recycled content by SCS Global Services? To meet this certification, 91% of the material used in the creation of the shelving must be either post- or pre-consumer recycled. Our manufacturing team sources 87% of the steel used to make our ventilated wire shelving from post-consumer recycled products, which means less waste and a smaller impact on our planet.
ClosetMaid was the first closet system in the market to emphasize the use of recycled steel, originally earning the prestigious SCS Recycled Content Certification back in 2010. Since then, we’ve increased the amount of recycled steel used in our ventilated wire shelving from 75% to 91%.
It’s just one more reason to feel good about your dream closet.
What are some other ways you’ve recycled products in your closet? Have you found a creative use for all of those old wire hangers? If so, let us know in the comments. We’re looking for fun projects for ours.
Until next time!
